The Longest Road

by Sarah Donner



The Longest Road is a life metaphor, or just a character flaw in Settlers of Catan.


So you head to the hills and the forest, but still
You’re just building the longest road
The mountains are far, but you know where you are
When you’re starting the longest road

You look down at all your cards
You’re played out, and it’s so hard when
Bricks and wood are what you need

A city sits inside your hand
But houses still aren’t on your land
And no one wants your fucking sheep

You’re won’t settle in, wasting on settlements
Because you’re building the longest road
The points they could swing with Year of Plenty
When you’re building the longest road

So roll the dice and make a trade
Because that’s how you play the game
Lead yourself to victory

The robber’s placed upon your grain
But you don’t need it anyway
And no one wants your fucking sheep

You’re not one to fight, so you pass on the knights
Just keep building the longest road
It’s unlikely you’ll win, but you cannot give in
When you’re playing for longest road

Special building phase

I wrote this on tour, could it be metaphor
I-95 is the Longest Road
And you're never alone when the road is your home
Just keep living the longest road
