Monday Morning Railway Platform Poem #1

It was just like this

It was just like this – not!

Upon the platform
I form a plan
Because, I ‘am’ that sort of man.
It’s not a plan of any scope
It is to board the ‘next’ train
Which is mine, I hope.
Not ‘actually’ mine
Obviously
That would be silly
I have nowhere to keep it
Though I suppose if I could borrow a siding somewhere
I could stay there
And live on board
In 1st class
What a jape
A wheeze
Or a similar old-fashioned term.

Have you got a long-term plan for the future?

  1. You weave in humour so effortlessly.. Really enjoyed this short piece.. but there are definitely much deeper layers to it. Great work.
