Photo 365 #257: Ode to My Car

My new car was
Pretty as could be.
I was quite excited to have
A car that worked, you see.

My old car was great,
And we had lots of fun
Driving round the state
To visit our friends one by one.

But now my new car sits here dead,
As dead as dead can be,
And I’m sitting here inside it,
Trying not to scream.

My new car was
Supposed to last,
Not crash and burn
Remarkably fast.

It’s been a long day;
I really didn’t need this.
All I want to do is go home
And forget all about this.

It’s been a singularly wretched Monday,
And all I can hope for now
Is that tomorrow will be a better day,
Some way, some how.

      Well, it’s new to me, anyway – it’s a 2004, so not really new. Still…

      And it turns out the engine was flooded. Once the service techs cleaned things out, it was fine (though I think it needs a tune-up). I have no idea why it flooded, though, so hopefully it won’t happen again. 🙂
