Car Maintenance

When this light glows
The handbook read
Take vehicle for check
And  I did just what it said
He shook his head
Drew in his breath
Moved a little closer
To a nasty death
He took out a pad
Jotted down a note
Then he said
I'll get you a quote
He came back and
With professional charm
Told me the cost
One leg and an arm
I heard myself
Weakly say
That's just fine
Can you do it today
No courtesy car I can loan
That's still ok
I'm not far from home
Then I set off on my walk
Muttering a muted tirade
About the ethics
Of the motor trade
