Fortunate nobody bought harm once I failed
To note that one other automobile had entered
The visitors circle earlier than me, however not so fortunate
When my automobile was declared not price repairing.
Fortunate my automobile made no accusations
Concerning the many extra years of driving
We’d have loved collectively if solely
I’d remembered to look the place I used to be going.
No approach to clarify to a automobile, which all the time waits
Simply the place you allow it, the human capability
To float in thought away from the physique
Simply when the physique is in want of steering.
No accusations, however how unhappy the sight
Of its headlights damaged and dangling,
Its crumpled bumper and splayed hood,
Its bared body bent to the facet.
No approach to apologize for repaying so poorly
How frugal it’s been with the gas I’ve fed it,
How fast to begin up on the coldest mornings
With out the shelter of a storage.
No person harm, but it surely wasn’t your fortunate day,
Misplaced automobile, once I drove you dwelling from the supplier
5 years in the past. How trusting you have been,
How sure that wherever we went collectively
You’d have your protector with you.
No matter hazard you might have fearful
Was mendacity in look ahead to us up the street,
You by no means suspected me.
