Stories of manhood

Working on the car…

We used to do nearly everything

But that’s the way things are.

From mists of the distant past

Told with grim emotion…

One tire inflated too far, too fast

Resulted in explosion!

The guy doing the inflating

Was tossed side and died…

Every time I inflate a tire

I see that in my mind’s eye,

I’m fearful that the same

May one day occur with me…

Over-inflating a slow-leak tire,

Could I be blown to eternity?

–Jonathan Caswell
