Faith vs Reason

We must run our lives with bits of both we're told.
Either, without the other, leaves us too extreme.

There are three possible ways to come to work.
Although of course there's one preferred.

We listen each morning to traffic reports on three different stations.
Pushing buttons, as we make our way.

My "Z" and I,
Warriors together for ten years and too many miles.
We work well, we know the tricks,
Where to change lanes, and when to forge ahead.

There's a problem coming up, an accident at Berry's Bridge.
They all agree.
But westbound, not east.
And the one that I trust the most says the rubbernecking isn't too bad.
So we do not turn away.

We crest a rise, and there before us.
A solid wall.
Three lanes wide by three miles long,

.and we know that he'd been wrong.

And worse, that in good time, my boss would know as well.
