It was a drag and a blessing
Because of the truck’s blocking
Freeway lanes last Monday
It was at home I finally stayed – to my boss’s dismay.
Tuesday morning came and all ready
Only to be greeted by conductor’s announcement
We’d be going until Monctlair only was his plea.
Shock and wonder why from going to work was I prevented?
Determined yet helpless
Called my husband and told him of my stress
“Don’t worry”, he reassured me no less
“I’ll rescue you, my damsel in distress!”
*Everyone’s talking in the train of how long they got stuck and how they got to work — eventually.
