& these black lines?

the hire car was silver grey

came with a full tank

return policy same

no sat nav

just a map of the islands main roads

& these black lines?

those are the local roads sir

leading to peoples homes

ok I said thank you

& off we went

following the main roads

stuck in tourist traffic

lemme lookit that map

& we set off you know we did

on the black line roads

all gravel sand humped up by use

leaving dust clouds behind

& all went well

for a day or two

until I found myself

in a garden wedged on a rock

excuse me sir I’m stuck

es ok he smiled

just rock it

between first & reverse

it’ll back out

& he was right it did

I suspect this was not

his first rodeo
