Reverse, for LOL

This isn’t poetry, and it ain’t fiction.  for

Adventures with reverse gear

New Maxi, unfamiliar
with the gears.
Gave an old lady a lift
to nearby church.
Reverse unfindable
so drove miles in a circle
to take her home.

Previous car, cranky,
parked in town on a hill.
Couldn’t engage reverse.
Inched closer to the car in front
at each futile attempt.
Handbrake on, importuned
bewildered stranger
for rescue from the jam.

    not necessarily related to the theme, any old poems would work.
