On The Bench

 

Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey

 

Empty station
Watch the drizzle
With the data clouds

 

There are no planes
No single sex now

 

This world is not your oyster

 

Me entienes?

 

That passport expired
And the bus has been cancelled

 

No need to check the guidelines
Or look at a timetable

 

This building has been abandoned

 

Company orders

 

There are new plans now

 

A new order to this concrete reality

 

I have heard
Some call it unnatural
Others conspiracy

 

This forced removal
These lands put out to tender
These polluted views for the majority

 

Not that the pigeons
Or the rust on my shelter
Cares

 

For a revolution
With no alternative
For a dream
Born from a fantasy

 

Come on man
Just let me sit here and watch

 

I have nothing else to do
And nowhere else to go
