Serenade of Sirens

An ambulance screams
and twenty cars pull over

The emergency vehicle
maneuvers through a congested intersection

speeds onward

Traffic resumes its natural motion
as each car is guided
by a human being
going somewhere
to do human things
in an inhumane world

but everyone bears the brunt of it well
as one crew races to save the day

and all the rest of us
do our best to stay in rhythm

so please just show some mercy
with your next siren serenade
