The Fast Lane

Cruisin' in the fast lane, all life long.
No idea where I have been,
Here and there but don't know when.
Where did I go wrong,
Marching to this crazy song.
A paper bag, a pint of gin,
Cruisin' in the fast lane.
Not sure where I belong,
But there I, with sheepish grin,
Blinded by the spin I'm in,
Swingin' within the throng,
Cruisin' in the fast lane...

    can't seem to find a poem to see of yours not even on this back page! but I am remembering this poem. I had not noticed before it is rondeau!! How unusual and clever to make it in six syllable lines!
