Altercation on the Bus

Rush hour with tensions running high
The real world seems to pass us by
Travellers stare at Internet
Tired, frustrated or upset.

Angry passenger on the bus
Which failed to stop on time; the fuss!
Sharp words exchanged – the bus drives on
The sang froid of the driver gone...

It's known commuters hate delay
So I thought how hard it is each day
For drivers on a busy road
To keep their temper, not implode.

Perhaps our angry man forgot
To push the button for his stop
A lack of patience seems the rule
But blaming others is not cool!
