Treasure Island

Allen Steble

(20/04/1987)

Traffic


It's eight o'clock
time to wake up
get ready for work
and iron my shirt
I get on the road
onto the freeway
this is what I do
every single day

Bumper to bumper
stuck in traffic
car to car
its just fantastic
if I caught the train
I might be on time
if I had a plane
id get the by nine

Just finished for the day
time to head back
guess I'll take the freeway
its the quick track
as soon as I get on
something is wrong
is it roadwork's again?
its driving me insane

Bumper to bumper
stuck in traffic
car to car
its just fantastic
if I caught the train
I might be on time
if I had a plane
id get the by nine

Yes, I'm finally here
I can kick back
and have a cold beer
its great to be home
now its time for tea
and then off to bed
tomorrow ill do it
all over again

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
