Give me a gun and I can’t hit the proverbial barn door. However give me a tractor and trailer and I have no problem at all! Unfortunately there are no excuses from my ‘Farmer’s Book of Big Excuses’ so I’ll just have to take it on the chin. Well almost…
The door to the shed is wide enough,
For most farm vehicles and all that stuff,
When I put my tractor into reverse,
All of a sudden my day becomes worse!
I looked in the mirrors on the tractor,
They were clean so not a factor,
Started reversing into the corner,
Heater was on but not like a sauna!
My mobile phone was in my pocket,
Started to ring I could not stop it!
Before I could see who had rang,
There was a loud and sudden bang!
Looked for damage on the trailer fender
All I could see was a sliding door bender!
You may think that farming’s all glamour,
I mended the damage with my ‘effin great hammer!
Take care when reversing, you never know what may be lurking behind you!
