Bridge Out

Bridge Out  

Road Closed Ahead
Find Another Route

Highway authorities
cast me adrift without a
suggested detour.

Maps offer too little
detail to be helpful.

GPS warns, "Make a Legal U Turn or
plunge to your death on the road ahead."

What next?

Road Closed Ahead.
Set your life in order
Try prayer.
Send up a flare.
No goes there.

Last opportunity for
Last Will and Testament here.

So, I stop, just before the bridge
to pray at Larry the Lawyer's
Last Will and Testament Stand,
decline the offer from the kid who 
knocks on my window selling flares,
start back,
ignoring the sign that says,

"Turn Around Now
You Missed It."

  1. This has the “makins” for a great mystery story, with the pretty maiden alone on a dark night. I just know there’s a villain out there somewhere posting signs!

  2. All these very helpful signs! I love “try prayer,” haha, and the Last Will and Testament roadside stand.
