Farm Truck Sonnet

Farm Truck: A Love Sonnet
Oh, faithful farm truck in the barn,
an old friend we can always count on.
Perhaps the most used machine on the farm,
you always stand ready at the break of dawn.

Your paint is dull with spots of rust,
the windshield cracked, and bumper dented.
Unreliable gauges make guessing a must,
and inside you are “farm-scented.”

But newer trucks could never compare,
with your years of service and steadfast pluck.
Though heated seats and power windows could us snare,
nothing could replace our faith in you, dear truck.

No, you are more to us than an old friend,
you are part of the family in the end.
