Shoebox, a
blue ox, a
wet back, a
marshmallow
turned black,
shotgun shells,
silver bells,
a band-aid,
a shirt starting
to fade, a moon
pie, a small white
lie, a bumper
sticker, a finger
licker, a rebel
with a cause, a plan full
of flaws, a road sign,
a clock running
out of time,
a policeman
with no authority,
a small,
but strong
minority, a stack
of roof
shingles, and
catchy radio
jingles, a tattered
notebook,
a fishing pole
with no hooks, a
strong and
sturdy tree,
and all the things
it could be.

I like how you can think of many interpretations for this. It's nice how the rhyme scheme isn't cheesy.
