Someone’s written a poem about the A14 and we can all relate to it

A commuter who has to brave the A14 on a daily basis has decided to put her experience into words and rhyme.

Jeniffer Riseley, 40, who travelled daily from Rushden, Northamptonshire, to Huntingdon wrote a poem about the road while she was stuck in traffic on her way to work.

Speaking to CambridgeshireLive about her creation, the mum-of-four said: "I wrote it about six months ago when I was stuck in traffic.

"Sometimes my journey was quick and sometimes it would take two hours.

"So I'd have quite a lot of time to just sit and think.

"I would sit there twiddling my thumbs and thought of this and jotted it down when I got home.

The accountant now commutes from Rushden to Kettering, so there is no escaping the road of hell.

The poem reads:

If ever you find yourself bored,

Creativity totally floored

Then feat not a jot!

For I know just the spot,

Where all poets can reap their reward.

For a road does weave into this Shire,

Whose existence is totally fire.

You can sit there for days,

With your mind in a haze,

And fumes rising higher and higher.

The poets of old had their hills,

And their picturesque houses and mills.

But we are so blessed,

Even under duress,

And all of our stress-induced ills.

We all know what it's like to be stuck in A14 traffic
