The new family in the neighborhood overslept,
And their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus.
The father, though late for work, had to drive
Her if she'd direct him to the school.
They rode several blocks before she told him to
Turn the first time, several more before she indicated
Another turn. This went on for 20 minutes - but when
They finally reached the school, it proved to be
Only a short distance from their home.
The father, much annoyed, asked his daughter why she'd
Led him around in such a circle.
The child explained, "That's the way the school bus goes,
Daddy. It's the only way I know."
