Commute

bzz grumble ping crash
chitter chatter nash
poking elbows achey back
and please, oh please, do mind the gap!
crumpled water
bottle slaughter
litter rolling while she titters
on the phone to ma and pa
don't you wish you had a car?
then at least the endless squabble
of the city's homeward hobble
could be replaced with humphreys droning
and self-righteous whispered groaning
isn't modern work a joy
a tête-à-teat with the hoi polloi!
