We’ve bought a car

We’ve bought a car
A car!
I’m trying to learn its name
so when people ask
what type of car
I don’t have to answer “black”

We’ve bought a car
A car!
It smells of new car
and I must admit
that smell makes me want to take my bike

Not the car
A car!
An environmental sin
a treacherous luxury
a source of senseless worry

Will someone scratch the car?
Will I wreck the car?
His car
He bought a car
Not me

#NaPoWriMo day 8 suggested to write a poem with repetition. After reading the example they provided, Edgar Allen Poe’s The bells I desperately wanted to write a masterpiece. Preferably about a word I love. I wrote this instead 🙂 Please do read Poe’s poem, it’s brilliant!

    One of my favorite childhood memories is of my father dramatically reading to me “The Bells” and “The Raven” and oh so many other wonderful works. 🙂
