If I were the driver
I'd first beep
just to make sure those people up ahead are awake.
I'd get out of the car
to see what's causing the delay.
By now
I'd probably
turn onto the shoulder
back up to the last exit
and take a different route.
If I were the driver.

But today...
I took the bus.
So I get to
sit back
close my eyes
relax for a while
and rely on the driver
to get me

Wow. So well written, and I like that you left it there and didn't continue...

I like this...
I like understanding that I'm a passenger.
But sometimes..I need to grab the wheel...just to be overpowered by the driver..
