I am looking at a road map
And no it is not my face
I am looking at a road map
And I’m feeling out of place

There’re ten jillion roads in Texas
And each one looks like the other
My eldest son says through his teeth
“Daddy just how much futhur?”

“Well Son I’d say we’re bout half way”
“But Dad just now we left the drive”
“Well Son my answer is halfway
Don’t ask again to stay alive”

I never been the navigator
Reading between the lines of the map
It’s not as easy as at Indy
Where it’s all just one big lap

Remember east is least west be best
It only works if you’re left-handed
But if your wife is driving sir
Don’t be bad map reading branded

Oh and “H” is for hospital
If you get in a fight with your wife
And just allow her to fold up the map
It’ll lessen your map reading strife

LOL I wrote "the road map to love" much
more sensitive than this.

hahah men are from mars and women
from venus.   OH, my, give me a map
and a I will tell you where we are. LOL

never side or backseat drive NOT worth
the pain it causes.  hmmm, once my mom
left my sister in a gas station for a long
road trip -----counted a head twice, I guess
LOL

Great poem. Walt.
