For this week's prompt, write an "on the road" poem. It could be an "on the road again" poem, a la Willie Nelson; or it could be a special new trip. Or an unexpected excursion--good or bad, day or night, etc.

Here's my attempt at an "on the road" poem:

"Festival"

It's always fun at festivals,
especially when on the road
and surprising as carnivals.
It's always fun at festivals
eating funnel cakes, fried pickles,
and fried candy corn a la mode.
It's always fun at festivals,
especially when on the road.
