Quite complicated the traffic system is,
yet a set of efficient hands are busy
in making it simple and effective.
Mr. Comma---a humble and useful hand-
serves as a traffic police in the junction,
controls the regular hustle and bustle,
compartmentalises the jumbled vehicles-
carrying the important ''Meaning'' for us,
provides the drivers with a moment of leisure
to be refreshed for a while
and directs them to race on the way of destination
one by one in a disciplined
and a meaningful way.
An indispensible hand it seems-
so what? We like saluting the reformations.
Prof. John Mc Whorter,
one of the famous system directors,
likes to introduce a post-curtailment process,
raises his new sword on
the neck of the old-Mr. Comma,
convinces the world about his poor significance
and assures the smooth running of the system
without the presence of Mr. Comma,
the world says,'' Let's see''.
