The Lonely Long Haul Trucker

On The Road

On The Road

You can get the best cup of coffee at a small gas station outside Omaha, Nebraska

The prettiest librarians are at a library in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

But I'd rather be home

I could sit in my chair

I could watch my wife and kids

I could just be me


There's a spot outside Portland, Oregon, where you can sit and watch the turbulent waters tumbling over the rocks

You can get unbelievable lobster bisque in Salem, Massachusetts

But I'd rather be home

I could sit in my chair

I could watch my wife and kids

I could just be me


The air and smells of the open road are fantastic

I pretty much travel the entire United States

I'm my own boss

But I'd rather be home

I could sit in my chair

I could watch my wife and kids

I could just be me


Yes, I'd rather be home

This poem opens the eyes of readers to the trucker's life and the sacrifices he makes so that others can benefit from his work.
