i took a bus into town today,the number twenty-one
i never knew that travelling thus,could bring me so much fun
i took my seat on the upper deck,for the journey into town
hid behind my morning paper,and had me a look around.
two ladies in front of me chatted away,discussing a next-door neighbour
and whether she voted Liberal-Dem or plumped instead for Labour
a guy at the back had a giggle attack,at an imaginary joke
hidden from sight as he asked for a light and puffed an illegal smoke
three seats ahead a notorious ned,with signs of a broken nose
insulted a guy with a patch on his eye,it very near came to blows
as we neared the town and things calmed down,i settled down to read
"Investment in public transport" a worthy cause indeed!
tomorrow i take the car ........
