It's such a glorious day. The sun is shining,
The air is fresh, and I need a little freedom.
Drop the top!
Cruise the backroads, a casual trip
Along the twisty blacktop.
Rumbling engine, rumbling tires, rumbling spirit
Ready to drop the hammer at any moment and
Flee the limits that slow my life down
To a crawl.
My trip will end soon enough; I'll go back home,
Back to the city with its clogged four-lanes
And timed stoplights…
But not yet. For now the sun will shine on my face,
The wind will muss my hair,
And I will enjoy technology and nature all at once.
This is truly the open road.
