Direction finder

Everywhere appears to be this way,
this way out
this way in
you are here
and this is where you’ve been.

we are being mapped and
this is the way that it;s going,
but knowing it’s this way
doesn’t help you to find a way
to escape.

This way to gain mental health
this way to the bank where you
can deposit your wealth
this way to the church on Sunday
this way to work on Monday

that way looks a better way
and some say that
that way’s been blocked
then they would
wouldn’t they?
