Senior Coffee

Stuart Watkins

Sausage biscuit and senior coffee

drive by the big yellow M sign

the thought started reverberating

pounding in my mind

couldn’t stop it

passed another big yellow M

on another corner down the way

in the wrong lane

couldn’t make it in time

sausage biscuit and senior coffee

the words were now controlling

and my mind was demanding

left city limits

wait, wait, wait

next town will have one

drove forever

there off to the right

another big yellow sign

exited and turned in

closed for repairs

back on the interstate

stayed in right hand lane

next town

no big yellow M’s

there, there one loomed

on the left

have to exit

do a U-turn

no problem

sausage biscuit

senior coffee

worth it
