Ode to Ol' Christine

Ode to Ol' Christine

2000 Saturn
Plum and fair
I refused to name you
For over a year

I finally decided
What I will name this thing
It's old Christine
From Stephen King

You worked fine for a while
Then kids let ur air out
Then a nail cut some tires
And I wanted to shout

Ol' Christine your AC broke next
In the record heat
2011 Kansas Summer
Records from 1932 we beat

Next you've started
Only when you please
Sometimes an hour others a week
Sometimes after one try you little tease

Then you shut off 
Halfway down the road
You tried to kill me
And today with a full car load

Ol' Christine
Do you like the name?
I think its fitting
Yes you're to blame

I know these are old comments and most people don't use this site anymore but if you see this my newest "Theodore Bearsley" may interest you.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
