The Jump Start!


Jump LeadsThe other morning, when the temperature had dipped below zero, a tractor refused to start. Out came the jump leads. I hitched the errant machine up to its companion, waited a short while and Hey Presto! we were on the go. Returning the jump leads to the cupboard,  an idea crossed my mind…

Imagine on a cold frosty morning,
when your get up and go isn’t there,
you lie helpless under the duvet,
thinking ‘sod this, life isn’t fair!’

All of a sudden it’s happening,
your partner reaches for the jump leads,
“These will charge up you battery,
for your later appointment in Leeds!”

She opens the very large clips,
their size you’d almost forgot,
she holds them menacingly over your body,
you’re out of bed like a shot!

The attachment point doesn’t bear thinking about! Have a great day and stay safe out there!
