On Being Stuck in Traffic 2 : The Reckoning

You’ve been waiting over an hour now,
If you’re still waiting there at all.
I haven’t even moved an inch-
I’d be grateful just to crawl.
While up and down the smokers waltz,
Sucking their Pall Malls.

Sitting still inside this heat,
My children dripping sweat,
Time slips into ridiculous.
Has it been two hours yet?
And all the world revolves, revolves,
But I haven’t moved a step.
