 ramblings and things

Queueing for busses

Even though not going far

Been queueing for busses

Ever since I sold the car.

I still can’t believe

What a bus passenger hears.

What have i been missing

For all of those years?


I sit there quietly

Occupying  my place

Trying to maintain

An unmoving face.

I hear about adultery,

Uninhibited sex,

Heaven only knows 

What I’ll hear next.


Delinquent children,

Beaten up wives,

Don’t people these days

Lead such disjointed lives.

The best are young women

On their mobile phones. 

They seem to think

They are in worlds of their own


Yet they all seem to speak

In a manner so loud

As if they are fighting 

The noise from a crowd.

Admissions of guilt,

After fun-filled nights,

Lurid descriptions

Of esoteric sights,


Three in a bed romps,

Translucent underwear,

Just some of the things heard

While quietly sitting there.
Sometimes I've travelled
Miles further than I've intended
Just to hear how
A good story ended

 

Queueing for busses

Even though not going far

Been queueing for busses

Ever since I sold the car.

I still can’t believe

What a bus passenger hears.

What have I been missing

For all of those years?
