Oh Drat! An Airy Flat!


Out of air.
Out of gas.
Both not fair.
We'll take a pass.

Both can suck.
Both can rain.
Pass the buck,
On such a pain.

Or pass the gas.
Easy to do.
Out the ass,
It just flew.

That went flip.
That went flop.
Here's a tip.
Just don't stop.

Let it flow.
Let it fill.
You never know,
What can thrill.

Or what can suck.
Like a drain.
Pass over that buck.
It feels no pain.

Your wallet may.
Or maybe not.
Repair they say.
Such an evil plot.

But can be filled.
It can be fixed.
You may not be thrilled,
But life isn't nixed.

Still a step.
Still a stride.
Follow that pep.
Life is still spied.

Life can be found.
Life can be breathed anew.
So before sand you pound,
Take a new view.

And a newsflash. IWSG has a new book bash!

B&N 

Yeah, the cat is nuts. We get that from many huts. All of that from a crummy flat tire. But meh, it can be fixed by some repair guy for hire. Could be fixed by Pat too, but damn such manual labor at our zoo. If a story or idea falls flat, take a new view like that of the cat. Ever need a new view? As crazy as our zoo? Oh, and if you have that kind of gas, pass it away like my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  3. A good one! Writing can be a lonely place but doesn’t have to be as we struggle with insecurity and all the other aspects of it. It’s great to have community to lift and inspire. Smiles.

  16. That's why I have the Auto Club
    to fix a tire when it goes flat
    Rather they do it and keep me safe on the road
    so I don't go splat.

  19. Always good to try a new view
    Before saying things are done for you
    Better to have a positive spin
    rather than thinking you'll never win
    why be a negative Nancy
    when things could always turn out fancy?
    Lots of good could come due
    When you change that point of view.

  25. One of the perks of being married to a car guy is he fixes the flats. On the car, that is. If my writing feels flat, I'm on my own.

  27. No need to pull out hair
    If our tyre runs out of air
    Just grab the spare
    And continue without a care

    Good analogy for life I think!
