Traffic Jam: Line Up!


Line up! Line up!
Like a band of good soldiers
Like a group of ant workers
Don't cut from the left
Don't slip from the side

Line up! Line up!
Like a perfect dance formation
Like a flock of migrating birds
Don't keep honking horn from the back
Don't abruptly slam the brake in front

Line up! Line up!
Use your sign properly
Aim your course clearly
Don't make dangerous maneuver
Don't try your luck too often

Line up! Line up!
Keep your distance
Mind your speed
Don't cross the red light
Don't steal people's right

Line up! Line up!
Park correctly
Drive safely
Don't be obstacle in other's path
Don't be tempted to break the rule

Line up! Line up!
Wait your turn
Or back and return
Don't fill the impossible space
Don't keep pushing like in race

Line up! Line up!
Give a way
Give respect
You are not the only one in hurry
You are not the one who own the road

Line up! Line up!
Don't be arrogant
Don't be selfish
Keep your temper low in trouble
Avoid doing something regrettable

Line up! Line up!
Be patience
Be a culture
Unless you want to be a mix of unsolved puzzle
Unless you like to be a pile of unmovable dislocation

Line up! Line up!
Do it elegantly
Do it as behavior
Unless you wish for embarrassing massive collision
Unless you seek another wasted hour

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
