Intro to Poetry, Day Four: Journey

Poetic Device : Simile 

‘Hurry,’  said hubby, ‘it’s a long way to go,’

The highway was as straight as an arrow.

Suddenly the road looked like a slithering snake,

Impending danger frightened us as we neared a lake.

………………………………………

Y’all be not afraid announced our experienced driver,

Soon after the car hit something hard and heavier.

‘I’m not sure what it was don’t worry, said our hero, 

But I noticed the fuel tank indicator turned  to zero.

…………………………………

Hubby the driver hit the panic button,

We went to the nearest gas station.

The guy at the station showed a blank face,

Said, ‘worry not yo gentle man, act like an Ace.’

……………………………..

Worry is my hubby’s middle name,

He thought what will all the same.

Finally we arrived in Newfoundland,

Which looked as lonely as a crow on the sand!

………………………………….. 🙂 

 

A long road, running in to the horizon

  1. This is indeed a very amusing story, and told with elegant rhyming. Sometimes we cannot stop worrying – the good thing is that you reached the destination without further troubles – although the destination itself looked like a crow on the sand – interesting rhyming for New Foundland!

    Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

    • Thank you so much. Our journey to Newfoundland from Montreal was interesting, except when the car hit a dead animal on the highway. The fuel tank was damaged, we had to remember, when the indicator showed empty it meant it was half full. 🙂
