This Darn Car Won't Run
Author: Jon Krauss


This darn car won't run.
This darn car won't run
and fixin it's no fun.
I fiddle and I tinker
to fix the horn and the blinker.
It used to run real good,
used to have one color hood.
It's more than just a hobby to me.
It's a project for eternity.

I can relate!

We all have some kind of project that we put aside and will probably never get done. I'm thinking about my two dirtbikes that has been sitting for years in my storage shed. Them darn bikes won't run! Ha, Nice poem Jon!

That was my car in another life, age 16, I believe

I know the answer to your car's problems, paint the hood green, then add some orange stipes. Next, add four, "just four blue dots, that's all she needs to be a reliable steed.

Like your car and your work!
