Two paths converged in a progressive neighborhood
And I am not sorry about the one I chose
And yes I saw them wearing masks while drifting on
Yet veer a half-dozen steps over, I could not
To the place of traffic refusing to distance
I will be saying this to those who jest and jeer
Some place, aions and aions past the horizon
Two paths converged in a great neighborhood, and I—
I walked across the one most frequently ignored,
or disregarded as irrelevant to most,
And that has made all the difference in the world.
-Bobby Lee Verglas, "The Path Taken"
