Wedding Bliss, Not -- a Limerick

Wedding Bliss;
Not for Long

A gal in an elegant wrap
She married a regular sap
She couldn't cook a bean
He didn't know to clean
They fell apart, blew off the map

Driving There;
a short epic poem
[click on pictures for large size]
Driving to Key West having fun
Open car is wanting to run

Soon will be dark, should call the room
Let them know you'll be coming soon

Homestead, Key Largo, Marathon,
You're glad you'd gotten up at dawn

Alligators traipsing, O Gosh
Sugarloaf Key, the road awash

You slowed to a crawl, wet blacktop,
Rain pouring, up with the rag top
No more speed now, just hold the road
Traveling light, not with heavy load
Rain please stop, seventeen more miles
Sing now, pray to God, love these trials
Look. Your glass. Who is following?
Been there for miles, you unknowing
Don't be afraid, it's alright dear,
Plate says "Angel"--no need for tears

Note: I have wanted to Go to Key West ever since I knew it was there.  First I wanted to ride my motorcycle but now driving my Mustang convertible to there would be fine.  Or even one day from a Disney cruise ship leaving Galveston.  I have been to all 50 states but never to Key West.  We did start there one day but I turned around for worrying about not getting back in time to meet a deadline in Miami later that afternoon.
