Poet's Corner: Wheels keep turning

Whirling twirling wheels go round Spinning us across the ground Babies in carriages make no sound Soothing ride up and down Kiddie cars propelled by feet Give tots freedom down the street Skate boards, scooters, two wheel bikes Peddling fast all day til night ATVs stir up the dust Annoyed dogs bark like they must Motors take us farther yet Cars zoom by just like a jet Over mountains and fields they go Even faster are trucks you know Time goes on we drive no more
