Stress ~~ Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Little Pony

old Mustang is dear
going on thirteen candles
one-fifty no more

her spirit still high
faster than that she would go
one-fifty's too fast

we stop at one-ten
metal fatigue--kill us both
stress her no I'll not

Sensational Haiku Wednesday is hosted by Jenn. Please click on the logo to the right for info about joining in and for more Haiku Wednesday participants.

To read and see Jim and his Mustang's guided picture tour of Cut and Shoot, Texas, click here. The 1998 Mustang GT convertible has 88,000 miles of which 39,000 Jim put on since he got it used in 2001. It was Jim's retirement present from himself.
Yes, it still will go over 150 mph but he doesn't take it over 120 now because of the silent killer, metal fatigue is likely to be present. (We used to magniflux our stock car racing cars after race for metal fatigue.)

One Single Impression: Monument

Fall from grace

they stood tall and proud
monuments to once known gods
center of worship
now grown old and decaying
no one knows and no one cares
