Railway Woman

I am a railway woman, love my job
I take you there and back, I take your fare
Sometimes behind the scenes, sometimes you’ll see me
I fix the track or operate the signal
I clean the station, guard or drive the train
And when you need me, here I am to help.

Haiku Series: From a London Bus

This is what happens
When I spend my bus journey
Composing haiku

​You don't often see
A bull in a china shop
Ordering spring rolls

Eavesdrop on buses
Poetry manuals suggest
But no-one's talking

​Hands-free mobile plus:
You can now get away with
Talking to yourself

If The Jam had sung
'In the City of London'
A thousand things crashed
