Tube Traveller Diaries (3rd Journey – No Destination in Sight)

Down town..?

Down town..?

I leave my train at St Pancras

Cruise down the multiple steps up ahead

A little jog, takes care of my energy  blast

Luckily I didn’t fall and end up in a hospital bed

Where I arrive and leave...

Where I arrive and leave…

So I’m on the underground

I feel safe and have no fear

My morning juices abound

Now I realise that everyone else is on here

 

As I board, eyes avert mine

That’s okay,  I shouldn’t really care

Everything is normal, the day will be fine

As the man calls out ‘ next stop Russell Square’

It's round not square?

It’s round not square?

The tube lurches forward, then suddenly back

The old couple opposite look tired and worn

As the door ‘slides open’ passengers leave as a pack

The voice throughout echoes ‘ Next Stop is Holborn’

Sounds like a biscuit?

Sounds like a biscuit?

I look at the map above

To see what stop should be next

Covent Garden flew by like a dove

Now Its left me all perplexed

Secrets are kept here...

Secrets are kept here…

Ignoring my twilight zone reverie

I stand proud holding on as firm as I dare

I clock two senior ladies looking at me

The time passes rapidly as we’re at Leicester Square

Is Leicester Square? Is the world flat?

Is Leicester Square? Is the world flat?

They left me with two wry smiles

Nothing wrong in that

Piccadilly Circus was less than a mile

I had the warm glow of a Cheshire Cat

The world get pickled and it becomes a circus...

The world get pickled and it becomes a circus…

Entering my transient world from outside they came

A man that resembled Iron Man, or at last Mr Stark

Dodgy shaved beard and moustache that was lame

As the TFL transport arrived at Green Park

The name actually makes sense...parks are usually green...

The name actually makes sense…parks are usually green…

Motoring towards the my journeys end

I finally sat down like Little Jack Horner

After we left, the tube went around a bend

And ended up at stationed at Hyde Park Corner

A great place to play the all time favourite child's game of Hyde and seek!

A great place to play the all time favourite child’s game of Hyde and seek!

My time on here began to recede

With my mental energy on the wealthy heritage

The years of legacy held within written deeds

Must mean that I’m nearing Knightsbridge

When the realms had their Knights who travelled over the bridge (not Stamford...)

When the realms had their Knights who travelled over the bridge (not Stamford…)

Oh well its the last stop for me

My legs push me up like a leaping toad

Maybe I’ll you tell about what I see

When I return from my end destination; Gloucester Road

End of the Road...

End of the Road…

When I can afford my return ticket I will be in touch!
