My mommy’s car needs to be clean,

Clean on the outside

Clean on the inside, too.

At the car wash,

A dark tunnel with lots of water shooting at us

Some scary arms and legs hang down, reach out

Whole bunch of soapy things slap and splash,

Noisy things that scare me,

They come close like sea monsters

Cover the windows with stuff like cool whip,

Makes me afraid, it gets too dark.

I think of dreams when I try to sleep,

I had in my bed at night

No! Not good; just bad!

Then, suddenly loud air blows at us,

We can see

And we are free!

I don’t want to be in that tunnel again

I want to see the bright sun

The blue sky with white clouds

Green trees and flowers

And people that smile because they’re happy.

Yes, fresh air blown by real wind

You know,

I don’t want to be in Mommy’s car

When that monster cleans the inside, too!



About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
