Wasting Away in Traffic

That’s all I can do.
Listening to music, yea, I guess.
But there’s no song I like on the radio, and my only CD’s scratched.

Of how much I could be doing
If only this traffic was not.
Waiting to go home. To my kids. To my family.
This is why I get home so late
I’m here. On this busy road, with all of the other businesspeople
Waiting to go home.

Based on the traffic of New York City, and escaping it.
