Don't know where this one came from...

The bus,
      with kids,
l a b o r s
      its way
to school.
      the park-
ing lot,
      it drops
its load --

Understanding relief. Gooooooooooooooooooood Point Made in such few words; amazing!
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 10/26/2006
A great personification of the bus. I can almost hear "him/her" sigh. Nicely done. Love and peace to you,

Reviewed by H. Lena Jones 10/25/2006
Hey Karla, that's clever. Can be interpreted on several levels. For instance, a pregnant woman finally giving birth...dropping her load, as it were! She would feel relief, right? Well done! :)

God Bless

Our buses aren't kidless long enough between loads for much relief I don't I know the drivers need more in between...) Cute write!
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 10/25/2006
Sooo well done, Karla. Says it all visually as well as syllabically. As Victor says, sounds like an exhausted mother putting her feet up with a well-earned cup of tea for 5 minutes peace and quiet. Conjures much with a few well-placed words. TY K xx

With all the children jumping up and down, no wonder the bus need relief. Must have been painful. Victor

Karla ...

This could very well be an advertisement for a laxitive. Sometimes, I imagine, that full bus can feel like being constipated.

Goodun ...

This is clever, original,and totally you! The words you come up with stirs the imagination! Very well done poem; take a bow! BRAVA, Karla!

LOL, this piece has a lot of significance, Karla. My husband is retired from an Engineering career and drives a school bus! I'll have to print this out for him. The relief belongs to the driver, not the bus, rest assured! Excellent poem!

Yes! As a former school bus driver, in a life long ago, you just gave me a most vivid flashback, Karla!
