Pile Up On The M88?

Urban sprawl;
a cacophony
of traffic
overloads
sanity, stuns commuters
into submission.


Magpie 88 lead me to dream up this Shadorma pile up!

  3. Oh, for a peaceful quiet road,
    Where no lorries carry a load,
    Where Nature sets the pace,
    And on this I rest my case.

  6. You photo mash-up pulled from the photo just what you were looking for. My only advice: things are easier in the passenger seat as described in my Magpie Tales this week is In Vince’s Car.

  15. When you see a driver's mouth moving behind the windscreen, it's not always singing along to the radio. Sometimes they are words of submission.

  23. Wow! What a trip! Love the "contemporisation" of the photo and your poem's comment on our modern urban life.

  24. I'm laughing at Martin's dry comment. Just what I was thinking but in less creative terms...I was going to say that I don't think commuters are always submissive. Good shadorma, and clever twist of the photo to match your pile up!
