Title: Open Roads

I saw it on the TV screen,
so vast and wild and fancy free,
the long horizon stretched afar
and not one single motor car ;
'Til faint there came a gentle purr
and I saw a vision, silver spurred,
all curved and quite the perfect toy
And Oh! My heart it leapt with joy.

And closer still it sleekly prowled,
assured in its transcendency ;
with at the wheel a dream come true
of ruby lips and eyes of blue -
of ripely sunkissed golden hair
that streamed in lightness through
the air ; And Oh! She sang a lovely song -
'Come sit my love where you belong'

And though I knew what truth there lay
in this sweet image that I saw,
I could not for the world deny
what I could see with mine own eye ;
And thus I rushed, indeed I flew!
With hard earned crust to pay my due,
for what good I thought? What can it
serve, to go without my just deserve.

But sadly now, this star crossed tale
must end as all such journeys do,
for it was no more than foolish dream -
held in too high and grand esteem,
that this misguided, silly fool could
think to climb such dizzy heights ;
For if truth be told I'll always be,
queued up in line, and never free,
from the long roads of reality.
