The Subaru

I remember daddy having an old black Subaru

That thing was a rust bucket, I’m telling you

we called it the tin can, but at least it ran

It wasn’t til years later, I began to understand

the sacrifice…

He drove it even though it was a heap,

not because he was “being cheap”

but because his money went

to doing things

like providing our food

& a warm bed to sleep in…

I’ve got appreciation & respect

for that old car, in retrospect
