Segue


SEGUE
by
Eric Kobb Miller

As I struggled to drive in the rain,
regretting I hadn't taken the train,
I couldn't help but cry out in despair:
“How am I going to get from here to there.”

From my smartphone came a voice so fair,
apologizing that she didn't see there, anywhere.
I clenched my teeth and gripped the wheel,
as I tried not to let her know how that made me feel.

But, then, I saw some signs ahead
and squinted my eyes to see what they said.
What I saw was quite a surprise,
and I, honestly, didn't believe my eyes.

THIS WAY; THAT WAY
RIGHT WAY; WRONG WAY
SEGUE they did say.

“Which way?” I shouted,
as the phone meekly pouted:
“I don't know what to do,
It's up to you.”

Exactly!, I said, it's my own decision,
as I made a perfectly, executed transition
with a SEGUE that made the shift easily
and got me from point A to B, seamlessly.
