Over Heating

The little meters
Now once more
She wondered what
Each one was for.

Her husband said
“Watch them with care
That’s why the makers
Put them there.”

The steam that filled
Her engine hood
She knew could not
Mean something good.

Her husband said,
“I told you Dear,
Watch the gauges
I made it clear.

The temperature gauge
Is easy to see.
How you missed it
Is a mystery.”

She said, “The gauges
Just confuse.
I never know
Which one to use.

The temperature gauge
Didn’t help a bit.
When I last looked
There was lots of it!”
