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!
