Distracted at the light

I'm sure many have come across someone like this

Diverted attention, clearly visible

In front swerving left and right

Serious attention should not be divisible

To others you’ll be a plight

Remember the basics, or did you forget?

All rules. Revise and reset

Caution whenever you set and respect

Trailing masses behind you upset

In queues they sit and lament

Oh this driver in front is so careless and dumb

Never mind, the green light is gone

    Ahhh, such a great one, Mohammed!! Totally relatable! I rarely see anyone at a stoplight who isn’t distracted by their phone. It’s funny to watch, actually. The second the cars stop, everyone’s head looks down to the tiny screen vying for their attention. Great take on this!!! I’m struggling with the challenge- Lots of thoughts with no way to organize them 😂
