Car Fire

2 June 2008

[Engine fire]

Twinkle twinkle little car,
burning bright upon the tar.
    Not a scratch on any tire,
    engine block wrapped up in fire.
Twinkle twinkle little car,
methinks you drove a bit too far.

[The photo isn't mine; it's yanked from the 'net. But it perfectly depicts a flaming vehicle we passed on the commute to work. The poem just seemed to compose itself.]

While handing off the pager to a co-worker I mentioned the addictive Tetris game on it. She recalled playing Tetris on her Gameboy in grade 5. Gameboy in grade 5?!? When I was in grade 5 my computer used 8-inch floppy disks. Sigh.

Ok, now I'm going to get indignant emails from the slide-rule crowd...
