CSD Traffic Signal

Off we go in a blaze,
of not fame and glory,
but,of smoke and fury!

Oh, the grey landscape
Oh, the fragrant fumes
Oh, the harmony of horns
And whirring engines

How can my morning be,
without this 45-minute chaos?

How we wrack our nerves!
How we resent the autos!
How we glare at each other!
As a swarm, we move from
Cauvery to Minsk

Till we all stop
under a tree-canopy.
Engines turned off,
Horns given a break,
Visors unfolded

Oh, the colored flowers
Oh, the pleasant breeze
Oh, the natural sounds
Of a sweeping broom
And roadside chatters

How can my morning be,
without this 120-second haven?
