I'll Take the High Road Commission

~Ogden Nash, 1902-1971


    In between the route marks
    And the shaving rhymes,
    Black and yellow markers
    Comment on the times.
    All along the highway
    Hear the signs discourse:

MEN
S L O W
WORKING
;
SADDLE
C R O S S I N G
HORSE
·

    Cryptic crossroads preachers
    Proffer good advice

    Helping wary drivers
    Keep out of Paradise.

    Transcontinental sermons,
    Transcendental talk:

SOFT
C A U T I O N
SHOULDERS
;
CROSS
C H I L D R E N
WALK
·

    Wisest of their proverbs,
    Truest of their talk,
    Have I found that dictum:

CROSS
C H I L D R E N
WALK
·

    When Adam took the highway
    He left his sons a guide:

CROSS
C H I L D R E N
WALK
;
CHEERFUL
C H I L D R E N
RIDE
·
