urban-motorway-rush-hour-1761033

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Urban (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase

Urban Rush

Waiting waiting

Beep beep

Rush rush

Hustle hustle

Bustle bustle

Waiting waiting

Horns blaring

Cars gridlocked

Lights red, lights green

Lights in-between

Waiting waiting

Patience tested

Time wasting

Work awaits

Fingers tapping

Waiting waiting

 

Small boy looks at his mother

‘Is it us?’ he asks.

‘No it’s like this everyday.’

‘Take me home!’ he cries.
