What public transportation looks like
"Public Transportation" by pbomar1115

Public transportation is not for everyone, I know because I use it daily.

It means letting old ladies board first, including women with their carriages of babies.

On rainy days, when I’m caught out with a lot of groceries without the umbrella,

The passenger’s eyes say as I passed to a seat of choice, “I hope he catches salmonella”.

Also, If it’s not loud conversations, both women and men have on their cell.

It’s the voices old friends meeting who haven’t seen each other, now that can be hell.

Surely, a person can observe uncanny personalities on the bus and light-rail train.

Of course, you must realize the variety goes with the territory, forcing you to maintain.


Author Notes
I was inspired to be a little poetic, hench, my transportation.
