Poetry From My Students

Mr. Eubank's Car

                         Yesterday, while I waited
                         Waiting for a ride home
                         Suddenly, I looked
                         Looking at the parking lot.
                         I saw Mr. Eubank's car
                         His great car is white
                         But I saw it had rusted red
                         The red peeling off the top
                         I do not know why
                         Maybe it is too old
                         Or it has been used too much
                         Without taking good care
                         But some how it still works
                         Still running on the street
                         It carries him every day
                         From home to where he works
                         That is all I can say
                         His best car is his partner
                         Like his wife and him.
