  • Stuck On The Side Of The Road

    A Tale Of Winter Car Trouble!!!! LOL!!!

    STUCK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

    I hear the Howling Wind
    The Winter's calling
    My car won't start
    because the engine's stalling!

    I can't call anyone!
    My phone is dead!
    The battery indicator
    is flashing red!

    I can not think!
    My head is froze!
    I should have worn
    much warmer clothes!

    And to add to all
    my many woes
    I can't even
    feel my toes!

    My hands are cold!
    My fingers hurt!
    And all I have on
    is a thin T-Shirt!

    It's so cold out here
    I can see my breath
    And I sure hope
    I don't freeze to death!

    I have no hat ---- or scarf
    Or a single glove!
    I should've said 'Goodbye'
    to the folks I love!

    When I left home
    the weather was calm --- and cool
    Now I'm out here freezing
    like a great big fool!!!!

    Stuck on the side of the road
    because my engine is stalling
    And to make matters worse
    The snow is falling!!!

    Nicely rhymed predicament you've got here Rhymeboy . I surely hope it's imagined and not based on prior personal experience.

    RB, RB, RB - You have captured with poetic magnificence a dilemma actually confronted several times in the military while stationed in Germany with snow, unlit back roads and stars for light. You learn to adapt and anticipate because back then, there were no cell phones, no calvary or ruby red slippers to take you home. Those days! Whoa! Enjoyed your work RB. It's good to be home and thanks for the memories. Auf Wiedersehen! Namyh

      Thanks Namyh for your wonderful comments!!! Thank for your time also . . . my poems tend to be long . . . and many people tend to avoid long pieces! Lol! (Although for me, this one is kinda short! Lol!!!)

    felt the desperation of help all way through your poetry and seeing the helplessness to get out of situation. some times you can not doing anything and have to sit it out and ride the storm pun intended out. enjoyable read and maybe good to raise awareness of going out this time of year to be prepared.

    Imaged there it could be Houseman's

    "into my heart on air that kills
    From yon far country blows:
    What are those blue remembered hills"
