Poetry 101 Rehab – Road

I’ve been told not to follow the beaten track,
To make your own path in life.

Unfortunately, I’m no 4X4
And when the tarmac is cold and unforgiving
You can forgive a man who makes an easy living.

A simple job, A simple life
With time for children and time for my wife.
Yeah, that sounds nice.

I wasn’t built to go adventuring
And a concrete jungle would blunt a machete.
I think I’ll follow the road.


This week Andy Townend chose the prompt RoadGo check it out and enjoy some of his fantastic writing while you’re at it!
