DAILY POEM "TRAFFIC JAM"


Late again what do we do?
Traffic held up
another long queue
glance at your watch
nerves uptight
engine getting hot
flashing a red light.

Cars moving slowly
legs stiff and sore
radio blaring loudly
vibes hit the floor
Clutch up clutch down
brakes always used
shouting and screaming
people being abused.



Two miles an hour
time going fast
wondering how long
tempers will last
cyclists passing thinly
smiling on the way
speaking in a happy tone
"have a lovely day"

Anger on all faces
swearing under breath
tooting horns in madness
thinking of death
I will not do this tomorrow
my nerves won't take the strain
another way I have to go
as my heart can't stand the pain.

Enter work late again
boss fuming eyes of rage
pressing on his notepad
flipping over the page
trying to explain is hopeless
falling on deaf ears
traffic jams are unnerving
and puts on many years.


Everybody loves being stuck in traffic NOT, especially when you are running late for work, how many times does this happen, it makes you fume and get irritated and when you finally turn up at work, the boss doesnt believe you were stuck in traffic lol.

Has the above happened to you? what do you do to keep yourself amused when stuck in traffic?
