He Doesn't Want GPS

He doesn't want GPS  
Feels he can navigate fine on his own  
Even though he frequently misses turns  
and doesn't remember to use Maps on his phone  
when driving somewhere new  
 
Lack of intelligence isn't the problem  
He's well educated  
Well spoken  
Respectable trajectory  
in his professional career  
 
He doesn't want GPS  
even though late one night  
on his drive from Tucson back to Phoenix  
near to when he should have been home  
he found he'd gone in the wrong direction  
and was close to the border of New Mexico  
 
Lack of money isn't the problem  
He's financially stable  
Well able to afford  
one of the many inexpensive, portable GPS devices available  
 
He doesn't want GPS  
even though I've extolled their virtues  
many times  
Even though getting one,  
would get me to stop nagging him about it  
 
I want to upgrade my GPS  
Not the one in my car,  
but my internal one  
I need to navigate my own roads  
Avoid making wrong turns
Make sure I'm traveling in the right direction
and not attempt to steer anyone else's life

My ongoing urging hasn't affected our friendship in any way, but I'm realizing it's time for me to shut up.
