The Road Taken
Inside an office park cubical farm,
Three rows deep and two aisles to the right,
I saw a poem pinned to a foamboard wall
Above a stapler and some paper clips,
Which said “I took the road less travelled by
And that has made all the difference.”
The nearby hallways branched and forked a lot,
But all the paths showed equal wear and tear
From heavy bureaucratic foot traffic.
I wonder if whoever tacked it up
Somehow perceived some abstruse relevance
Or wished that things had turned out differently.
If you have any thoughts on this poem, David Stephenson
would be pleased to hear them.
