1974 Directions -- Poetry 2011


Lost again…

Simple directions

Trusted Google

But it led me astray

Like you lead me astray

Left me to wander

With two kids in tow



Thought directions were clear

Fall in love

Trust you

Checking my compass

Your iron will faked true north

Magnetic force pulled me

Wrapped in charisma that soured

Lost in abysmal chaos



The Reverend got lost

My parents were afraid to speak up

Google wasn’t around back then

Would that have made a difference?

Paper roadmap

Simple directions

Trusted you

Lost in “love”
