The Metronome

He kept a metronome on the dashboard of his car.
He said it helped him keep the pace with the basic vibrations of the universe.
I always wondered if he had to adjust it depending on his location.
Imagine the tempo of Central Expressway compared to a back country road.
This man was odd, to say the least.
He marched to the beat of his own drum or rather, drove to the tempo of his own metronome.
At any rate, I did learn one thing from him.
No matter where you are, it's important to keep the pace with the universe.
Sometimes you just need to adjust the weight.
I still can't help but wonder what frequency he was thinking of.
