Wheel Song

The my town shootout topic this week is "wheels".





Wheel Song

Wheels take home so many things,
like steely glints and ragged dreams.
The axles turn in my soul,
I know they know where to go.
The darkness through the windows glare,
like ebon ghosts with silent stares.
I've shed so many skins on this ride
with each turn, I've cried, lied, died.
Wheels take home so many things,
like steely glints and ragged dreams.

  2. imagine all those coca cola coming to your house!!!! in Borneo, when I was growing up in the 60s, we put a little bit of salt into the coke and they fizz more.
