Have you ever tried
writing poetry on a train
you’ll write it time table and again
and the rhythm’s always the same
when you’re travelling on the train;
because, although life’s a pain,
a train will take away the strain
and leave you less insane
than you were inside your brain.
Wherever you go
whatever you do
there’s always a train
you get on the train
and look at the view
that’s passing you by
as you’re going to Looe.
