Crazy Travel Day

Today’s the crazy travel day
That everyone’s been dreading;
Crowds colliding all around,
No matter where you’re heading.

Airports, depots, subway cars
Are filled with out-of-towners.
Baggage bumping into legs
Turns smilers into frowners.

Every sidewalk’s packed and mobbed
With folks home for Thanksgiving.
It’s just like a zombie flick,
Although this herd is living.

Hopefully, they’ll make it home
Or to their destination;
Such a massive effort for
This Pilgrim celebration.

As for those who make the meal,
When patience does unravel,
Count your blessings – after all,
You didn’t have to travel!

    Love it! Don't love the traveling, so I stay home. I won't even attempt Black Friday. Happy Thanksgiving!
