Ode to the Tom Tom Poem by James Hart

Turn right

Straight on
Straight on

Third exit
Third exit

Return to highway
Return to highway

At roundabout third exit
At roundabout third exit

Battery low
Battery low

Destination reached

Tom Tom
Oh Tom Tom
Indispensable wizard thou art
Of satellite navigation,
Getting rid of maps
Getting rid of rows
Getting rid of back seat drivers
With thy stentorious voice,
A forceful reminder
That we are not omniscient
That technology has total control
That we are but the drivers.
