A POEM BY A FRIEND

Today I was cleaning up my files and found this great poem written by a friend of ours.  Thought you would like it.  Thanks Bruce - you're the best!


 Some people say a man is made outta crude,
A RVer's made outta septic and food,
Septic and food 'round skin and bones,
A mind that's a-weak and a truck that's strong.

You load 16 thou, what do you get?
An RV that won't move, and you're deeper in debt.
St. Peter won't you help me, cause I can't go,
My slide won't move, and I need a big tow.

I retired one mornin' and the sun sure did shine,
I picked up my paycheck and I walked off the line,
I was working no more and sure feelin' just fine,
Didn't know that my RV would take all of my time.

You load 16 thou, what do you get?
An RV that won't move, and you're deeper in debt.
St. Peter won't you help me, cause I can't go,
My tire's gone flat,, and I need a big tow.

I woke up one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain,
Raining on the inside, oh my rugs were all stained,
Dishes all soaked and my clothing was too,
I squished when I walked cause the rain's got in my shoe.

You load 16 thou, what do you get?
An RV that won't move, and you're deeper in debt.
St. Peter won't you help me, cause I can't go,
My jacks won't move and I need a big tow.

If you see me comin', better move aside
A lotta drivers didn't, a lotta drivers died.
My brake's fading fast and I'm sleeping at the wheel,
If my tires don't a'hit ya, then my awing sure will.

You load 16 thou, what do you get?
An RV that won't move, and you're deeper in debt.
St. Peter won't you help me, cause I can't go,
My truck won't move, and I need a big tow.

There certainly are a lot memories made by moving around in an RV. Many of those memories we definitely wish we didn't have.
