Poem: On Traffic Circles and Triumphant Arches

I play Google Map Pac Man
on the Arc de Triomphe.
Of well-designed streets,
I don't believe that's the epitome.

Ever try to evade ghosts in
the grandest traffic circle?
Like evading the NSA,
if you're Angela Merkel.

An exercise in futility,
isn't everything political?
Left-Right, Up-Down, while
we all become statistical.
