A Father’s Day poem

OOIDA member Carrol Zehner of Grand Junction, CO, sent us her sixth-grade son Kory’s poem. She says Kory is very proud of his dad, OOIDA member Matthew Zehner, and he believes his dad is the best truck driver out there. Kory is determined to follow in his father’s footsteps.

I am By Kory Zehner

I am a boy who loves big trucks.
I want to be a big truck driver.
I hear the running of the big diesel.
I see the truck in the mountains.
I want to drive over the hot blacktop.
I am a boy who loves big trucks.

I pretend to be a big truck driver.
I feel the steering wheel.
I touch the standard stick.
I worry that I will hit a deer.
I cry when it does not start.
I am a boy who loves big trucks.

I wonder if I can drive every day.
I will love to drive a big truck.
I dream about the day I get a big truck.
I try to be the best driver in the world.
I hope to drive all of my life.
I am a boy who loves big trucks.
