Metro Haiku Time

I had a rather hellish commute this morning, so it's time for some metro haiku!

Two completely full
trains at Vienna, neither
moving - a bad sign.

Emergency track
maintenance is a code word
for a derailment.

Single tracking, sigh.
We sat at Clarendon for
thirty-five minutes.

Making announcements
would probably make riders
somewhat less stressed out.

Arithmetic on
metro - seven minus ten
equals five minutes.

The prose translation is that, apparently, a train had derailed at Courthouse early this morning, leading to track work, leading to single tracking on the Orange Line. Once I finally got to Rosslyn, I waited 15 minutes for the Blue Line, even though the passenger display had started out saying the train would come in 7 minutes. Overall, my commute took about an hour longer than normal.
