Train of Thought



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…
