Get Off The Road


Get off the International Highway if you don’t like the
curves and the bumps.
Don’t stand there waiting for the Yield sign to trip you up
and take you where the grass is greener on the other side.

If you aren’t enjoying the view, switch the channel,
unplug the speaker, push the off button and go for a walk.
See something on the beach that makes you shake your head
in disgust?
Cover your eyes baby, it’s a free world
and we’re all here for the ride.

Don’t walk or run, just skip yourself out until
you sit on the right hand of God
and you have a stone you are worthy to throw.

Watch out for your house
It’s made of glass. . .
