Just like this train

Just like this train
to have on it
a man with shiny golden
crocodile shoes
Now that’s something
you don’t see
every day
He wears the secret smile
of one who dreams
above his station
Who does he
think he is?
Why I oughta tell him
where to get off
And would you believe it?
He does just that
With a smart snap of his
laptop like a quick quick and clever
reptile. Case closed
Doors open. There he goes
looking sharp in a river
of everyday grey
The man with shiny golden
crocodile shoes.

  1. Great Gill, love that ‘reptilian snap’ of that closed laptop! I enjoyed how the narrator wishes he would get off, and lo and behold he does just that!
