Assumptions and illusions

I was really on a shopping trip,
and not that far from home,
behind the wheel of my automobile
just looking for a way to spend the day,
when what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but this camel,
in a field by the road.
Perhaps my little trip had taken me
farther than I intended to go?
Or have I crossed paths with the wise men?
It's really hard to know --
and I didn't want to make
too many assumptions...
I took a picture and then drove on,
but the next time I passed, the camel
and his friend (who had only one hump)
were gone. Was it just an illusion?
How did I get here --
and Where did they go?
