Terry The Tire

Once I was in San Antonio with John to buy a tire for his work truck. While we were waiting I was thinking how hard the life of a tire is, expecially the ones on John's work truck so I wrote this while we waited.

The salesman pulled the tire off the shelf, he rolled it to the installer before he left.

Before now Terry the Tire had led a sheltered life, he hoped his new owner had no enemies who uses a knife.

He was turned and tightened and felt a little dizzy. In just a few minutes his life had become a tizzy.

The other three tires said their "hellos" to him. He thought they looked a little dirty on their old rim.

A rough future was the warning the other three tires gave. Terry though to himself, I must be brave.

Out to the country was his very first trip, this is fun Terry thought as they hit a dip.

The other tires knew Terry's life would be hard, as they neared the cow patties covering the yard.

What is this stuff Terry said to them? It's fertilizer dummy as the driver hit a small limb.

The cows were fed and the tires headed back to town. On the highway they hummed along not making a sound.

As they pulled into the carport the three heard Terry say, I'm tired but this has been an interesting day.

Ouch! ouch! What is sticking me? Oh Terry that is cactus, this is Texas you see.
