No Longer Driving Me Crazy



No Longer Driving Me Crazy


My map reading skills were not that pitiful.  

Who was this clown then behind the wheel,

he who adjusted our speed to fit his preferred velocity?


His secure belief that he would always 

obtain my approval for the itinerary,

even without asking me.


I can only hope

that no unwitting passenger will accept a ride from him now,

or at least, request to be let out under the five mile mark,
