I walked along Malarkey Street
Then turned right into Shenanigans Street.
At the junction with Tomfoolery Crescent
(The first junction not the second one)
I crossed over and took my path through Flim-Flam Cut.
I reached work only three minutes late
This was due to the wrong sort of blather as I crossed Caterwauling Canal.
Later, at 5:03, I finished work. Then…
I had to retrace my steps.
Same old, same old.
This splat form
please fill it out
As there is a train waiting
And you can’t delay
A train of thought;
Or something upon those lines.
If there is a point to all this
Then I do not know it;
It all points to some destination
But, as it may be a departure from my norm
I shall just see how it all pans out.
It may be a miscarriage of poetic justice;
Or just a jumble of words
That wag on randomly;
Or, it may be just the ticket;
From which a journey
Can depart-you to France
(If you know what I mean)
Or somewhere else.
If you choose to remain stationary
Then please can you fill out
This splat form – as there is another train of thought due along
Any time-table soon.
Not the train I went on – worse luck. G:)
Having travelled the length and the breadth
(sometines in the shallow end
sometimes way out of my depth)
Of the land
By foot, train, lift and van;
I’m now back at home with my darling Jane
And I’m a happy, tired man.
It’s true that there’s no gain without pain
And I have to do it tomorrow all over again
(apart from the train – that can wait until Friday)
thank you for journeying along as I weathered the seas (none of those)
And I hereby declare a last call for: “Fares, please!”
Not for my journey
I was considering train times
As a possible source of rhymes
But, I think I missed the boat on that one, alas
I thought I’d pen a few lines in my compartment
Upon my carriage and deportment
But, I am a bit of a slob when it comes to class
I was almost derailed by the thought of a buffet trolley
But, missed the points of going the whole nine railway yards; what a wally.
I am in training.
I know not
That would be my destination.
Just the ticket!
