The poem took listeners of The Eusebius McKaiser Show on a journey through the Monday morning mayhem of Johannesburg congestion.

Here's an excerpt of the poem, titled "Aki's traffic nightmare: 702 radio Highway to Hell"

It's the Monday morning mayhem of trucks and cars and vans.

Old Aki's on the airwaves and his nerves are on the fray

He's going to burst a blood vessel, his hair is turning grey.

Traffic updates will never be the same!

Listen to the lovely recital below:
