The Many Roads


You’ve heard the adage “All roads lead to Rome.”
I wonder what a Google map would say.
For, couldn’t some of them convey me home?
And when you turn around, they lead away.

Now what of that one road less traveled by?
Since it is famous, surely there’s a throng.
Those who think celebrity is why
They should all get in line and go along.

And what of roads to riches or to hell?
Or those that Bob and Bing would sing along?
In truth, there are too many roads to tell.
In film and story, poetry and song.

Remember that a road is just a guide;
Which way you travel, only you decide.
