Traffic Jam: The Worst Scenario - Poem by Maria Sudibyo

It is a hot hot day
You have to go
And you are late
You are feeling sick
And you have stomach ache
You forgot to bring your wallet
Also your phone because you're in hurry
You are the one who drives
And the car needs repairing 
Because the window can not be opened
And the door always needs a little push
The tank is almost on limit
And you again forgot to fill it
There is only one way
It is a narrowing road
With two side of direction 
The road is crowded
And you stuck on it
And you hardly can move 
All people become egoist
Everybody has turn into aggressive 
And nobody wants to give a space
Everybody will do anything to get forward
Even it is breaking the law
Testing your reflexes and mental
Or scratching your fine car
The motorcycle from opposite direction has decided to short cut into your line
And there are plenty of them
They invade all the road in front of you
Till you can face to face with them
And neither can finally move
And no officer around
You can not turn over
There is no alternative way
The railway lies nicely in the front
And the clock is tickling for the next train
And nobody has already moved 
Everybody has turn into panic mode
And the horns blow ever direction
Making it seems more chaos
And suddenly your stomach is getting worse
Sweats tricking over your body
And you can not leave the car
Because the door is broken
And the window can not be opened
And nobody care about you
Or take a notice on your frantic shout
Because they also panic with themselves 
So ready to say a little prayer?
