PostSubject: ON THE ROAD   Tue Feb 12, 2013 8:39 am

The road is a wonderful place
Where you see all sorts of things
Must keep between the white lines
Must not sleep, not yet, not yet.

What mile marker am I at?
More miles to go
Nothing to keep me awake
Only the radio.

Its late,
I have to get there on time
No one to talk to on the CB
Only God can hear me now.

So I pray:
Dear God, forgive me for all my sins,
I know sometimes I think evil thoughts
I try not to, but the devil keeps slipping them in.

Dear Lord, don’t let me fall asleep at the wheel,
I don’t want to cause an accident where someone gets killed.
Please get me home safely without incident
And give me Your blessings for the days You have sent.

You are the only King of the road I know
And with me it will always be so
I know You will ride with me wherever I go
I have faith that You will make it so.
Amen!

Love the personal touch and the stream of consciousness style. Nice work.

PostSubject: Interstate Argonauts   Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:14 am

Interstate Argonauts


It’s seven hours to Pittsburgh
And the rig is running rough.
But the load is worth a bundle
Soon will fix things, sure enough.

I haven’t seen the sunshine
In the last four drizzling days.
And the wife has missed my phone calls.
How she hopes the new boss pays.

I’m thankful for the mileage
And the triple-city link.
Yes, the shut-down at the last place
Brought us nearly to the brink.

I miss her more each outbound
And the boy just hit thirteen.
But the getting’s good this season
After months of living lean.

Ahead, I see the flashers
And the red flares through the haze.
Buddy jack-knifed at a hairpin.
He’ll be out for several days.

I see him by the squad car.
Sorting out the clean-up plan.
Was it four months back-the diner?
I had roast beef with that man!

We traded favourite stories.
Some of bright days on the ‘pike.
Some of weariness and set-back.
It’s the road, the road, we like.

I’ll have to hit the shoulder
Watching out for gravel drift.
Offer up a drive, some coffee
For this Brother needs a lift.


Note: And consider a link, Jan
