Train conductor

The train conductor says
Anyone needing please?
He’s worked too long to say
Of course it’s a ticket
Anyone needing please?
And the people in the carriage think
Is anyone needing please?
Am I needing?
What am I needing?
Please?

  1. Good to ‘see’ you. Brilliant pick up on those few words.
    Hope 2019 has begun well for you and will continue, meeting your needs whatever they are.
    We need just a few more of your poems, if you can. 🙂

      1. I hope you succeed in working on it. I just found myself penning a ‘poem’ completely influenced by your poetry. I’ll put it up on my blog next Saturday evening after I’ve read it to my writers’ club.

      1. I look forward to that 🙂 . No problem with the ‘spam’ – reminded me of old times. Was amazed to see I’d been enjoying your writings (“enjoying’ not quite the right word for some from those times) for well over 6 years!
