Limerick Ode To The GPS

Every so often, I read about someone who blindly obeys his car’s GPS and ends up under water. Here’s the latest incident, involving common sense-challenged Japanese tourists who try to drive to an island.

Limerick Ode To The GPS
By Madeleine Begun Kane

If your car’s GPS tells you, “Go,”
But there’s water ahead, you should know
That it’s better to park.
Check your map. Find an ark.
Or else gear up for driving in l’eau.

UPDATE: April 5 is Read A Road Map Day.

    There’s a woman in our GPS
    Who adds to my husband’s high stress
    Once she’s activate
    She loves to recalculate
    Driving him mad more or less

    My GPS sounds like a pro
    As it directs my car to and fro
    Karen Jacobsen
    Or Homer ( woo hoo) Simson,
    It just adds to my agony and throe

  3. I’ve read that some folks have such faith in them and they lead them into all sorts of accidents.
