The Morning Rush

  • Queues and hold-ups
    Drumming fingers
    Angry voices
    “Hurry up, I’m going to be late!”

    Beeping horns
    Traffic jams
    Sneering tones
    “Hurry up, I’m going to be late!”

    Swerving buses
    Hasty drivers
    Arguments
    “Hurry up, I’m going to be late!”

    Take a moment.
    Think about it.
    What are we doing?

    Gases dancing
    Fumes flowing
    Atmospheres dying
         STOP.
    Before it’s too late.
