Stop! Green Light

The light winks,

It knows what it’s doing to me,

Cheeky thing,

It knows what I want.


A break from the long day.

Time to remove what I don’t need and get what I do.

But it smiles benevolently.

Mind-reading monster.


I must push on,

Keep going until I don’t have to.


Home will be reached;

Cold and dripping with rain,

Because of the wily

Unbending Light.
