New Poem about the Baby Born in the Great Atlanta Traffic Jam

News Flash: Baby Born in Atlanta Traffic Jam!

This just in! A baby was born today
in the great Atlanta traffic jam
caused by icing and 2.6 inches of snow.

Initial reports were that the freeways were jammed
for 20 hours--children on schoolbuses over night,

bladders exploding, cars running out of gas,
vehicles abandoned on the roadways.

Here’s an update!
The traffic jam lasted so long,
we now know the baby born in the traffic jam

was also conceived there!
