Lancaster Railway Station (Print from Stock Image by Inky)

Perched on a bench – sat by a

line….waiting

as the station announcer

tells you over the tannoy, that your train isn’t arriving

for another forty minutes

on the plus side….the cafeteria is nearby so you can

ravish your teeth on another British Rail Pastry

moment to enjoy while you wait….

Days are funny things

Everyone plans what they’ll be doing

Running through – so nothing goes wrong

And everything goes the way they want – but

Instead – something gets in the way

Like a delayed bus, train or plane

Delay

#fowc #Delay

What is the Rush? Train Stopped

As it sits on Tracks, Locked

I am sat in the station cafeteria

Taking in a tea and cake

In expectation that the

Next locomotive is

Going where I want to go
