Poems from my Archives. Published 09/18/2011
Do I need a new car, my mind is asking
the one that I have has been mine and is lasting
well since February of 2007.
It was not new when I bought it if cars have a birth
this one was born in 2003 so it was four when it came to me
a BMW by name, an X5 model that truth be known
is the nicest car I have ever owned.
It has on it thousands of miles of wear and tear
and travel to places with nary a care
it always goes where I want it to go
and I am hoping that it will continue to ride
like the good car it is, with me inside .
Do I need a new car, the question is asked
can it do anything different from the one from the past
the answer is no, I am happy to say
So a new car is out of the question, today.

Fancy!! I wonder how long after you wrote this poem that you actually got a new car because all I’ve ever known you to have was an SUV. Then trucks. And now a fancy jeep. You seem to have come full circle.
My next car will be a motorized wheel chair
