The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round

Smirking teenagers riding the bus
Whispering about other passengers
Distracted by everything, focused on nothing
College students are self absorbed
Yet polite and oddly mannered
The elderly look sad as if all their cares
Over a lifetime accompany them on the bus
The driver is grumpy
Who wouldn’t be in such heavy traffic
But he is able and efficient
Someone talks too loud about ice cream
Someone else has their ipod on too loud
Someone else is me, trying to read David Copperfield
The bus ride is in fits and stops
But the bus is warm and eventually I’m able to focus on Uriah Heep
And am glad he’s not on the bus
