From the mind of a mild mannered maniac

Morning Commute


The cars pull in at sunrise
On their, circuitous, route downtown.
Early risers climb aboard,
The lucky ones sit down.

Just a few miles further,
And the crowds begin to grow.
The daily slog is underway,
the only way we know.

The platforms are overflowing,
the crowded trains roll in.
The angry mobs surge forward,
like sardines in to a tin.

Stumblin’ jumblin’ mumblin’
Our ride, roughly arrives.
I grit my teeth and marvel, at how,
society survives

An elbow to my rib cage,
stilleto to my shin,
More Angry, swarming, citizens
Cram tighter to fit in!

A cloud of scent mal-odorus,
and insanely strong cologne!
A loudly droning radio,
Someone yelling at their phone!

Poking, prodding, shoving,
the calm is fading fast.
Oh, how I long for journey’s end,
And open air, at last!

I want to scream, but whats the use;
Who would even hear?
Aboard this crazy train of fools
Your senses disappear.

  1. that is so cute, but I hope this is something you do not have to endure

    • Thanks Terry! 🙂 It is a trip (downtown core) that I don’t take very often. Parking downtown is hard to find, so driving is not a good option.

  2. I love your prose! Are these pictures from an actual trip of yours? What horror!

    • Thanks, Colleen! I’m afraid I can’t take credit for these cool shots. The top photo was taken by my cousin Darren somewhere in europe!
      The bottom photo was taken by my brother, Rick on his trip to Japan. It never gets that crazy here, but my hair-raising trip from our suburb to downtown Vancouver yesterday was the influence for this poem.
