No Fool Like No Fuel!
Poem By Tom Higgins
Had a bit of bother with my car,
my wife was driving it and had not got far,
when it began to stutter, and stall,
it wouldn't go, not at all.
She rang me and said,
'I think your poor old car is dead! '
I mentioned to her that before she left,
the fuel tank was of diesel, bereft,
could this perhaps be the reason why,
my old faithful had seemed to die?
And this of course was a fact,
I put diesel in and it did react,
and the engine spluttered back to life,
disproving the theory of my wife.
Yes, cars do actually need fuel to go,
without it they just tend to say, no!
