NaPoWriMo Day 19 Used Car.

NoPoWriMo : DAY19 TODAY’S PROMPT IS TO write a poem in the form of a personal ad!

USED CAR ADS. ( personal to cars)

Older car for sale in need of TLC

Body work interesting , advice free

Great buy for young lad with time to spare

Had one careful owner , was looked after with great care.

Okay lets cut the crap

The steering wheel is bent and I have lost my fuel cap.

The bodywork is iffy and  full of dents

The lights are broken and mice live in the heating vents.

My chrome is all rusted

If you want a long drive I just can’t be trusted.

You might just be able to get me back from the brink

But if I was a ship I reckon I’d sink.

    Terrific post – The first is almost a longing to keep the car or whatever the item might be and the second part is fun and a get it out of here attitude.
