Retread ...
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

I don't want to retreat from life,
when I'm old enough to retire.
I don't want to be tossed to the curb,
like a worn out tire.

I've many miles to travel
before I reach my final bed.
Take me to the shop
and make me a retread !

Do not put me in a pile
of things you no longer admire.
Apply a ply of retread ...
my heart's too young to retire !

Far too many miles
left upon this rim.
I want to be a retread
and travel life again.

I want to hit the road
and travel many a mile.
Let me be a retread ...
that's my style !

Very well written! I am sure you are not alone in thinking this. Hmm *lightbulb turning on* your poem just gave me an idea for a poem... Great job!

Echo - thank you.

Below is a response from a dear friend in Canada that I sent this to ... I just wanted to share his humor with you all.

If you're a retread..
does that make me a blowout?
can I clean your tread?
brighten your whitewalls?
Check your pressure
or rotate you till you come once more around to me?
dont be punctured....be loved.......Warrior

Another great poem Marge. I like your philosophy. I see why you like circles, they just keep going.
