My husband looks for antique tractors.
He searches far and wide.
'How much?' and 'How far?' are deciding factors,
Not how much room inside.

He built a big new storage barn,
Then started moving them in.
The barn seemed too small. He said, 'Oh, Darn!
Guess I'll start building again.'

He started building another and soon
I found him outside one night
Looking at it in the light of the moon.
It was an amusing sight.

Hands in his pockets; on his face a frown;
I asked him, 'What are you thinking?'
With a sigh and a smile turned upside down,
He said, 'It's amazing how my barns keep shrinking!'
