Traffic light

 The woman in the back blowing her horn
 She is in a hurry to go
 As I comes to a complete stop
 After the traffic lights turn yellow

 Thru the glass she showed me the finger
 But I paid her no attention
 She then start using obscene language
 That is too bad for this poem to mention

 My girl friend had just text she loves me
 And she was all I had on my mind
 And although I was driving in my car
 I was flying around in cloud nine

 The woman passes me on the right
 As the traffic lights turns green
 Showed me the finger again
 While still using a lot of obscene

 Some times at the traffic lights
 A lot of drivers seem to go crazy
 And I wondered how it was like before
 Traffic lights was introduce to society

 During the early horse and buggy days
 Traffic in the big cities was often heavy
 The police officers had Avery hard time
 Directing the intersections that’s very busy

 When police officer William L Potts
 OF Detroit, Michigan
 Had a brilliant idea to do something
 That would ease a lot of the problem

 So he wanted take the railroad signals
 And figure out away to adapt to street use
 With $37 worth of wire and electrical controls
 The first electric traffic light was introduce

 It was installed in Detroit in 1920
 On Woodward and Michigan Avenue
 And his idea was adapted around the world
 That today makes driving easy to do

 The world’s first traffic lights came into being
 When traffic consisted of wagons and pedestrians
 The automobile was not invented as yet
 And at intersections were a revolving lanterns

 The lantern was illuminated by gas
 Red meant "stop" and green meant "caution."
 The traffic light was stopped on January 2, 1869
 When it exploded and injured a police man

 Can’t imagine driving today without traffic lights
 This rude woman who curse me today
 Didn’t even have the patience to wait a few minutes
 For the green to give the right away

 Today people take every thing for granted
 We complains for simple stupid things
 Never appreciating the brilliant minds
 Whose inventions make our life’s so amazing

 The traffic lights is the most used inventions
 Some curse when it takes long to change
 Without it today driving would be a hell
 Without the “red, green and orange

 My girl friends just text me again
 She is the best in the whole wide world
 And I will always love her forever
 With all my heart and soul
