The Old Banger

My once reliable vehicle
That used to float me far and wide
Adequately catering for
Our friends and family beside

Showing signs deep-rooted
Early morning coughing starts
Wonky wheels and tired treads
Few places stocking parts

No longer keen on hillsides
Trunnions clattering in scorn
Perhaps a resting breaker’s yard
A motorhome for so well worn

In truth, my Ford Mondeo is 15 years old and still
feels and drives like a new car. I am going
to give it away to someone in need of a friend.
