We left Virginia at 10 AM this morning and arrived in our apartment at 5 PM - a whole work day on the road! Here's something I composed along the way:
The bus, the bus...
It's the cheapest way.
But man, oh man,
What a price to pay!
Hours and hours in a small seat,
Getting back to the city is quite a feat.
The train is roomy and fast.
Maybe this bus will be our last?
A common refrain while waiting and riding,
But the savings is something we cannot keep fighting.
I'm sure we will ride the bus once more,
And it will continue in family lore.
