Adam, I love that you've worked your way through the easy rhymes and are embarking on an expansive vocabulary journey to continue to tell us that the morning/evening commute is bollocksed, once again.

this is just to say

I have elbowed
my way
through the doors
of the train

on which
you were probably
waiting
for a half hour

Forgive me
the platform was
so crowded
and so cold

Rhyming is okay, but I think it needs to be snappy like a Variety headline. How about:

PM T Delays B/C of DOAs

Can the Greek Gods please explain what the people in Boston did to make you mad so you gave us the MBTA and this frigid weather? What deal did the russians make to get great weather and trains that work during the Sochi games
