Yesterday morning was one of the coldest so far this winter. The tractor that was parked in the barn, blocking all other machines, refused to start. I felt the same and was tempted to attach the jump leads to my terminals to kick-start my day! However it looked somewhat painful so I connected them to the tractor battery and prayed…
The tractor won’t start and I feel sick.
The frost outside is hard and white,
Should have charged the battery overnight.
I attach the leads and cross my fingers,
and rue the doubt that still lingers.
Up into the cab and turn the key,
The engine roars that’ll suit me!
A good set of jump leads – the farmer’s friend,
If only life’s problems were as easy to mend!
