"Missed Turn" by Liz Christensen

I should have turned there Made a left at that last light But I went on And now I'm off the path trying to circle back

U-turns aren't always allowed on this road There are no more protected green arrows to signal a turn from a lane made just for me

I'll have to zig and zag And cut a particularly fancy path on 3rd where the street goes only one way It's too dangerous to drive against the flow of traffic

The road I'm on no longer takes me where I want to go I really should have turned back there
