The sign said, “left two lanes,
“Proceed via break-down lane(s)…”
Rumble strip noise
There was little choice,
Late night construction pains?
Forward and onward we inched,
Past a sign our purpose clinched…
What could be next–
Would DIET MOXIE cause me to be pinched?
The troopers were considerate and kind,
One saw my “home from work” state of mind…
Lunch bag at my side
Not likely “tied”,
I was glad to stop and shop to unwind!
