东 – 西


On the train

I met an old friend

Who used to be a farmer


He was sitting

In the buffet car

And he laughed when he saw me

In my old boots and shredded jeans

And I laughed to see him

In his new suit and tie


I told him

That I had a hard seat

And he told me

That he had a bed


As we sat there


Drinking talking

Passing the time together


East going West

West going East
