UnPoetia:The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged near a neighbourhood,
Packed with cars from bumper to bumper;
I parked my car, beside it I stood,
Then walked to the bridge, close as I could,
Near the others watching the jumper;
But waiting made me weak and weary,
Worsened further by the falling rain,
With spirits low and vision bleary;
I chanted "Jump!" to make things cheery;
But sadly failed in my lone campaign,
A policeman told me "Move along"
So I trudged back to my waiting car,
Of making someone wait all day long,
For you to bid the world au revoir.
I pressed the pedal and breathed a sigh
Crashing headlong through a neighbour's fence:
Two roads diverged at that place and I--
I chose the route never traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
