Latin term meaning:
"from all parts, from every quarter
on all sides, on every part
all around, everywhere.."
Expresses being attacked,
no chance of escape.
It is the same feeling I had
on my scooter yesterday, while...
Riding down the long road
up and down hills
thinking of my loved ones
and how to pay the bills.
Out from nowhere she blows,
storm-of-storms, for me
drenched through to my bones
so I almost didn't see
overpass, a mile ahead.
Maybe I can swing over--
MY GOD, WHERE ALL THESE
F'N TRUCKS GONNA LAND?
Everywhere I see is wheels--
in agreed-on denominations of eighteens
as I'm riding here at 80/per
sitting in biting rains and well-soaked jeans
Scared? Nah! Well...a little--grin!
Made it to under the next bridge
seven miles beyond. (And ya know what?)
I knelt down on the sidebar of I-95,
thanked God and Flex--I'm still alive.
Also for the shelter, blessed am I.
Flex is my Guardian Angel,
name really "Flexibelle"
The TRUTH? Having more fun than EVER
could I imagine on this 18-day ride!
Nearly each mile a learning experience
Back home in Naples this weekend.
LOVE and PEACE, Peeps!
