   Traffic l

the cars begin screeching and honking while
on their bumpers the lights flash and flicker
driving along for an eternal mile
roadwork ahead makes it seem less their while
day after day, the rushing continues
the buses, trucks and automobiles pile
police try sorting them in single file
there is no use for their fast spinning wheels
accidents happen, they pay off their trial
back to their cars again, to crash in style
explaining road kill is simply just this
some are removing the earth's excess bile
others don't mean to, or calm nerves they rile
and in the end the traffic still moves on
