Wednesday 13th December


Reluctant to sleep,
The eyes want to close,
Here behind the wheel,
Things you want to do,
The person you want me to be,

It’s that time of year,
The giant wrinkle,
Accumulation of everything left undone,
Still wishing,
Keep driving,

Now I jump on a train,
(don’t go jumping on trains!),
It’s got too many ears,
No good for talking,
Like those women who sat next to me,
All the way from Manchester,
Mouthing off about people I knew,
Without knowing who was sat next to them listening,

Someone should make a career,
Selling everything they overhear on trains,
They probably have a department for that already,
That’s why I’m talking quiet,
If you talk to me don’t mention names
