"Goodbye, Old Friend" ~ a Classic Dave Lucas poem!

I touched you for the very last time today,
gave you a gentle pat on the side
after packing up all the leftover things.

I won't forget the times we spent together,
the places we've seen...
the songs and voices we listened to on your radio.

As we took care of you, you took care of us in return,
keeping us safe over thousands upon thousands of miles.
And in the end, you gave up your "life" for us.
Kept us from harm one final time.

I took one last look as I left the field.
I didn't want to take a picture.
I'll just remember you as you were.

A great car.




The car in the photo below closely resembles the one that gave its life in a crash. Well done, Hyundai!

    What a lovely poem! Just didn't expect that it is addressed to a ... car! So touching!

    Have a great day!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
