Over the Line

Next time, next time
We'll watch where we're going we tell ourselves

No one could argue with the choices...
You could argue, but it would be pointless
A foregone conclusion in one instance
The power to pick the route so childish and easily abused

But that reflection in the center line mesmerizes
You see more about the one doing the choosing
over time and certain consequences are inevitable
Not being chosen has a certain sort of panache

Over the line we go into infinity
or we swerve back to narrowly avoid disaster
Because there are consequences to choices beyond a street scene
choices that reverberate over time and space

and the leftover remnant of effort not made and money unspent
next time, next time
