Never Ask for Directions

Never Ask for Directions By Elton Camp Some always know what north will be However, that surely isn’t true of me And, really, what is there I can say Have I turned the map the right way Is that next turn to be a left or a right In finding the way I’m not too bright But directions I’m not going to ask My confusion I just have to mask Admit I’m lost I simply can’t do For help who would I turn to? Others may know even less than me For to keep on guessing is the key I’d much rather endure cold or heat Than, as a navigator, admit defeat Stop and ask for directions you say That I will never do, there’s no way!

Well, at least you can warn people ahead of time so they bring their GPS's. :P Good work... on the poetry, not the stubbornness.

Old age has forced me to ask directions at times, but it is still not something I like to do. Elton
