Tractors can be red
and some can be blue,
Some can be green
and some orange ones too.

You walk behind some
but most you can drive,
Attachments are made
for the front, rear, and side.

Options include blades,
tillers and various sized mowers,
Front end loaders, cultivators,
plows and snowthrowers.

You can get cabs, cup holders,
and even headlights,
Tilt steering, chrome hubcaps
and tires that bite.

Diesel, gas, even electric
motors if you choose,
No matter what you decide
you're sure not to lose.

Gear drive, Hydro, and
automatic too,
There's nothing you
and your tractor can't do.

So whether you like John Deere,
Wheel Horse, Allis or Ford,
I can assure you driving your
tractor will not be a bore.

Bush Hog, Speedex,
Gilson and Case,
Massey, Panzer,
Whatever your taste.

David Brown, Cub Cadet,
Bolens and Sears,
Take care of your tractor
and it will last for years.

You'll enjoy driving, moving, collecting
no matter what the task,
Your only regret will be that
you got done so fast.

For you'll sit and wait
for more seat time to come,
And hope that you and your tractor
will get the job done.

So while waiting for chores
from your wife or your mom,
You can always come here

No, unfortunately it was all me. I was bored, and just started jotting stuff down, and then thought, I could make this a poem. Most guys wouldn't think it's too cool for a man to write a poem, but I think it turned out pretty good, so I thought I'd share. Glad you guys like it!
