THE PENTAGON


There is a huge pentagonal --
It's called The Pentagon,

Offices are located by designations
That are harder to find than Lake Woebegone,

They thought it would be easy when they made up the scheme --
Ring, corridor and floor,

I've been such an unhappy wanderer there
That I swear I won't go anymore,

Even the passport application desk
Is like finding a needle in a haystack,

Were I not retired -- should they banish me there,
I'd vamoose and not venture back,

There are acres of parking available for free,
But you'd better take note of where you are,

I got lost in that automotive stable one time --
It took me forty minutes to find my car.
