Rogue on the Road to Rhode Island
(departure:8AM)

Don programmed the GPS for 13 Sherman St.Newport,RI.
It calculated we would arrive at 12:38PM
But we skittered through Mass on the toll road,
And the robot continued to steer us back to the country routes.

It calculated we would arrive at 12:38PM
But, using the toll road, we parked at 11:24!
Speed limit on I90 was 65mph; in Conn: 30mph!

But we skittered through Mass on the toll road
First E, then N, then E;the robot voice ignored.
She never voiced her rage; calmly plotted on.

And the robot continued to steer us back to the country routes
U turns, hills, a satellite view from the clouds;
And we, like arrows, found our mark, stealthily on the ground.
