Photo and Poetry © Steve Lakey 2014
Hey, you there! Hear what I say!
I just can’t stand being sat all day.
Though the odd delay wouldn’t hurt a bit
They’ve made me look like a First Class twit.
The service on this train is poor
No steward’s entered through my door,
It’s the last time I will use a train
the standards have gone down the drain.
Sitting like a tailor’s dummy
I don’t intend to pay out money,
Until this carriage moves a mile
This whole trip has been just vile.
No more do I want to roam
I just want to get back home,
Even you would want to fidget
If you’d been left like a wax exhibit.
The photo was taken at the National Railway Museum, York, UK. I wondered what the ‘gentleman’ in the photo might be thinking…

Steve this one made me laugh, only you could make a story about a wax work. Your imagination is brill! Thanks for entering the challenge 😀 ❤
Thanks, Amanda. I try and find interesting photos that inspire a story or a poem! 🙂
I hear what you say. 🙂
I think it’s interesting what photos interest one leave others blank. lol
You surely got a lot of mileage out of this one.
Thanks. I think I got more mileage out out of it than the guy in the picture! 😉
For sure. He does look a bit stiff and starchy.
What a great poem Steve and loved your train of thoughts. Suppose this is what ‘a picture says a thousand words’ is about. Thank you for sharing some of your words with us.
Thanks for the positive comments. 🙂
