Rubber Tyre* Rupture
Rubber tyre in the rain
Do you match the stress and strain?
Of sharp concrete edges by the road,
And a rupture that stops you bearing your load?
Rubber tyre on this day
Will we find another way?
As roadside assistants answer the call,
To fix the problem in the rainfall.
Rubber tyre we can be carefree,
Taking for granted that you will be
Always ready any day,
On any road or anyway.
May we appreciate when we are rolling,
The strains on vehicles we are tolling,
Little mishaps can happen anywhere
When on our way from here to there.
*‘Tyre’ might be rendered as ‘tire’ in some places.
