Sometimes a person can have a love-hate relationship with an object. My grandfather purchased our Massey-Harris tractor new, shortly after World War Two. I don't know if the tractor still exists, but if she does, this is for her-

Old Massey-Harris '81
You son-of-a-gun.

Cause of many mistakes;
never had good brakes.

Barbed wire around your nose;
crashing through fence rows.

Over dead furrows flying.
As a boy you set me crying.
