This train is departing

Eyes down
for a full house
on the underground

London Town where
care is a carefully used
commodity

It’s all about the numbers
cram them in
rinse and repeat
then
get them out.

91159
they’re sitting fine and dandy
in this carriage
which is not so handy
if you’re me and you’re
stood
not good at all.

Bingo
someone calls
but
they’re calling to
their dog

Weird or what when
even the dog’s got
a seat.

Shorts are getting shorter
while the journey seems much
longer
which is just an observation as
the train pulls into one more
station

shoring up a Thursday with
the thought tomorrow’s
Friday,
one way to get through the day
and that’ll do for me.
