Without the rancor I felt at my driving being criticized,
I reminded my dear one that I wasn’t the one at fault
For this debacle that we found ourselves in right now,
But he took my righteous anger with a grain of salt.
Mapquest had told me to go east at the next corner,
But I needed an ordianry “go left” or “go right.”
And because he was taking an ill-timed siesta,
He couldn’t assist me as I came up to the light.
So, going a little faster than I should’ve,
I missed very badly as I tried a smooth left turn.
Now you laugh with the officers at my calamity,
And I have a ticket to pay that I don’t believe I earned.
