“Commute Haiku”

DC is not bad
Free museums, things to do
Plenty of culture

Close to everything
Beaches, mountains, all within
Just a few hours drive

But driving can suck
Just as it did yesterday
Twenty miles, one hour

DC motorists
Swerve, weave, wildly wave their hands
To save five seconds

Aw, give me a break
Welcome to my lane, jack-___

Such nice thoughts I think

Brake lights, tedium
People here can’t drive in rain
Need new wiper blades

Why do I complain?
My life is pretty great
Food, home, wife, warmth, Christ

I still hate traffic.
