Wheels are ubiquitous

They are a boon to us.

Women and men pushing the strollers

People of all types being bicycle-ers.

Then we have the vehicles on four wheels

Driving the kids, getting the meals.

Going to the library, the play, the picnic

Then finally the walker and the wheelchair

A boon to the sick.

We have wheels on chairs, trucks, and carts

Indispensable to the drugstores and various marts.

Reducing friction is the name of the game

without wheels our lives would not be the same.
