The Absence of Tread

A worn-out tire, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


The absence of tread
Is nothing to fear—
Just keep on rolling,
You’ll get there, my dear!
 
The way may be long,
The road may be rough,
But you and the tire
Are tougher than tough.
 
Not even danger
Can make you stay home,
Just like a mustang
You’re willing to roam.
 
So keep on rolling,
You’ll get there, it’s clear—
The absence of tread
Is nothing to fear!
