Traffic Reports

By John Ross Harvey

Yesterday morning the 407 was shut down
In both directions near the 400
If people bothered to listen on radio
Or check the TV for
Traffic Reports
They would know
Why there is a long lineup
Going down the 400
They have to drive in the
Completely empty escape lane
Heading for the closed 407
And suddenly realize
Their mistake, and
Slow down and attempt to merge back
Into the 400 in front
Of many angry motorists
Already in line
Because they were smart enough
To listen for the
Traffic Report
