Guest blogger Chris Pilla has his own traffic poetry…
I drive slowly onto the blue route
a backed up merge causes horns to toot
a 5 mile drive to hit 95
that takes 20 minutes – can't people drive!?
I merge on 95 near Delaware
At 7 am I hit sun glare
The traffic slows by the airport
a car cuts in, and i stop short
we're moving again and just a few miles ahead
everyone slows down; more construction to dread!
there's work on the bridge and slow moving uphill
i feel like i'm taking some sort of CRAZY PILL
over the hill and then we decline to heed
speed limit signs that we all do exceed
i finally get north of 676
"being on work on time" – an idea i now nix
more tail lights ahead that i see glow
some idiot got in a fender bender and needs a tow
i make it across the betsy ross bridge and contemplate
should i stay at work longer for being 20 minutes late?
