Ode to the Merritt Parkway

October 10th, 2009

Under a full moon and patchy fog,
Connecticut’s Merritt Parkway inspired me to blog,
Of my experiences enroute to the Neck of the Throgs.

Be wary of the standing deer within inches of the road,
And hope the weather is not freezing nor has it recently snowed,
Because down into a ditch this parkway will quickly throw.

Above all else this road will save you time,
Though the on-coming high beams may make you blind,
Avoiding interstate ninety-five allows continuing your rhymes.
