On The Road

On The Road

A Poem by Temperance


It's time to pack and hit the road,

Get in the spirit, get in the mode.

Put on the smile and make the sale,

At times I wish I could just wail!


A better life there must be,

Out there for someone such as me.

Oh, but alas, as mom would quip,

"You made your bed; you sleep in it."


So off I go to make a buck,

Close a deal with any such luck.

Make 'em happy, make 'em say yes,

Relieve some pressure, relieve some stress.


Home will be quite a relief,

Though my stay will seem ever so brief.

A chance to rest and refresh anew,

A chance to relax, whatever I do.

in my early/mid 20s i crisscrossed from coast to coast many many times
the power of the thumb had to be learned but when it worked t worked well
can't do that these days
on the move or not doesn't matter
here it's the idea that gives you free rein

good write ... i'm wound up!
