06-26-2014 Ode to an Orange Truck

Posted by terminalhip on June 26, 2014 at 4:35 AM

An Impractical machine, for a contemporary man In this, our time of confusion, A simple truck all orange and white, many decried the sticker, in lieu of heart, Muddled Clutch Many motor transplants, hillbilly voodoo, it's a man's truck from time forgotten, but I remember hard brakes and heart aches, the mild inconvience of elderly, I rue the thought of an overly sick Id and crazy mind, don't ride angry, if not at all You may hear the throes of pall, I've got a full tank of gas and a ruined mind, who cares what anyone thinks, a speck of rust a dirty glare, I live a manual lifestyle. . ..

"The mild inconvenience of the elderly" runs all through this poem where one is patched and prodded but still running strong.

A full tank of gas and a ruined mind..can certainly relate to that..if the motor runs long enough maybe the mind can be fixed a little

ha i had a truck through high school...it ran....and it had character that is about all i can say...other than it held many a memory....

'Impractical' but ' a full tank of gas ' - this is what important!

I love "I remember hard brakes and heartaches".....I love the musing tone in this poem.

Right Thank you for reading Susan! I've stopped by your corner and I appreciate you offerings. Sometimes, I feel, that more primitive technology has it's merits. . .

Jae- stopped by your blog, awesome!! a ruined mind isn't a bad thing, I was trying to relate a metaphor between a truck and owner/ mind set and what society deems "practical"-
