Abandoned!

Once again Tess intrigues our Muse with this photograph by Andy Magee




















My folks said "Let's go for a run!"
But a run in the rain?- that's no fun.
Now they've left me alone
and I've no mobile phone
and I'm wondering when
I will see them again
or will a big tow-truck come,
fix a chain to my bum
haul me off to the pound
where I'll just lie around
till I'm turned all to rust.
That would be most unjust!
A car is for life, not for Christmas!

  1. I'm getting a very silly mental image from this, particularly the lines:
    "...or will a big tow-truck come,
    fix a chain to my bum
    haul me off to the pound..."

  5. I love the quirky way you likened an auto to a puppy-cum-kitty. LOL. It makes me wonder how poor Santa will cope if he has many Christmas prezzie cars to deliver next week?!

Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
