Spiritual Sat Nav

Spiritual Sat Nav long poem

Photo by Xurble

“At the 3rd exit bear right , that’s what it told me to do,
I’d followed the instructions, did everything it asked me to,
I admit I was a little distracted as the junction passed me by,
I thought it must be broken or at the very least it lied!!

“Drive 300 yards” so my heart began to race,
This wasn’t familiar to me, I must be in the wrong place,
“Oh no” I said out loudly, I can see it up ahead,
The traffic is a nightmare so I’ll take this route instead.

I wondered where it might take me, I guess I’d find out soon,
Surely they can navigate me if they can land a man on the moon,
Surely it’s not that difficult to get from A to B,
Then again I sighed loudly, we’re talking about me!

“At the roundabout take the first exit” I can see a diversion ahead,
Impatient and so I decided, I’ll try a different route instead,
I knew of a great short cut, one that they would’t know,
Thank goodness for my sat nav or I wouldn’t know where to go.

” Recalculating” it stated, there must be an easier way,
Frustrated I turned up my music and thought about what I could say,
My “arrival time” was later than it was going to be before,
I decided I’d just go faster, so I put my foot to the floor.

“Where possible do a u turn” …..no wait, that can’t be right,
This road was far too quiet, not a sign of any life.
It was daylight when I left the, the sun rose in it’s dawn,
Oh what the heck I reasoned, I’ll just keep driving on.

I checked my rear mirrors and I checked the side ones too,
I must have confused my sat nav because it didn’t know what to do,
I figured I’d make my own path, my own route here in the night,
Ahh i know where I went wrong, I turned left instead of right!

I must have added at least an hour to my arrival time,
I should have known better, should’ve got it right first time.
Yet again I checked my mirrors as I began to see,
My past was in the rear one, shouting “Hey, wait for me!”

For a moment I thought of reversing, for a moment I tried to look back,
In that very moment I realised, that road seemed so cold and dark,
“You have arrived at your destination,” moral please do heed,
My sat nav is God, the bible my map, I just have to allow Him to lead.

Somewhat surrealistic in approach. Fine manipulation of language to create an eerie atmosphere. Ultimately godliness prevails. Back to Methuselah !

At the end of the elated visit Around the mind moving marble mausoleum -Taj Mahal I was unconvinced to leave and got a place to sit As excited to enjoy the environment, withal It was the inside on the right,
