they say in life there are eight kinds

of people that you'll meet
its seems you may need all of them
to make your life complete
so let us take a look
at some of them you might have met
and let us do a study
of this curious octet
THE BOOT
the boot will kick out people
who are standing in your road
sometimes you have to extricate
to lighten up the load
and if the villains follow
in relentless swift pursuits
you have to make some tracks
and then it's good to have some boots
THE THIMBLE
the thimble will protect you
keep you safe from little pricks
and armor to deflect
all the effects of nasty tricks
when dealing with adversity
perversity and strife
it never hurts to have
a little thimble in your life
THE DOG
the dog is ever faithful
and will always have your back
its teeth it will be bearing
if you're under an attack
and then will commence barking
in a warlike dialogue
you're always safe from danger
if befriended by a dog
THE IRON
the iron is always pressing
urging you to do your deeds
a bit of motivation
is what everybody needs
when time is running out
and you aspire to race the sun
its good to have an iron
for making sure you get things done
THE BATTLESHIP
a battleship is mighty
with its blazing guns and such
a cache of high artillery
when life requires that touch
the waterways will open
and your passage will be clear
no one will block your entry
when a battleship is near
THE RACE CAR
the race car's always purring
moving fast to get ahead
the driver guns the engine
with a foot made out of lead
you have a destination
and you cannot get there late
its good to have a race car
hit the gas, accelerate
THE TOP HAT
the top hat is high fashion
with aristocratic class
a nod to posh society
a little bit of sass
some say its rather pompous
but i don't believe in that
you're looking rather dapper
when you're out with your top hat
THE WHEELBARROW
a barrow is a vessel
that will carry you along
it has a sense of balance
making work seem like a song
its helps to share the burden
and the aggravation too
you want a helping hand ?
you'll find a barrow's good for you
