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.
