OPEN ROAD

hittin the road jack
outta here like a fat kid
in a dodgeball game

when he’d rather be elsewhere

travelin light too
it’s america again
on that open road

figuratively

i’ve hardly seen it
well not much of it lately
except these four walls

and that’s been real good

but i’ll be home soon
before i even know it
and can’t hardly wait.

  1. Lovely!

    My four walls are becoming more familiar these days and that is fine with me, except I am wondering how long they have looked this disgusting and in need of fresh paint!! lol šŸ™‚

    Maybe I will commission a mural of the countryside!

    • Thanks it’s been nice (except not enough time on the computer haha) I’ll be coming home soon enough (and I’ll be glad) šŸ™‚ Thanks for reading.

  2. Oh, Pete, your setting is different, however this ‘truth’ so reminds me of Chicago south-side, end of the 19th century, in Homelands, John Jakes’ novel I’m presently (re)reading!
