REPAIR MAN

By Clyde Jacobs, Army

Writing Type: Poem

I was in the Air Force for three years
and I repaired everything that moved or couldn't move.
Planes, trucks, cars and tanks.
But whatever we were fixing, mostly it was engines.
They're all the same really ..
We fixed what we could
and swapped new engines in when we couldn't.
I fought 1ny engine battles in Texas, Delaware,
Florida, Colorado, Utah, California and New England.
Never got out of the country.
After the war I joined civilian life as a repair man.
I fixed cars, trucks, tractors, planes, made steel and concrete.
Cars were my favorite repair work.
My favorite was General Motors because they were the easiest.
But it didn't much matter because I was a repair man.
That's what I did. Fix things.
