Waterloo

I’ve been on this
platform for forty five years
and I’ve seen trains
come and go.
I can’t afford to
keep my options open
as this is the last
train tonight
and I don’t want to wait
till morning.

You however have time
on your side and could
probably sit on this
platform for another
two years with ease.
I’m sorry but I can’t wait
that long;
I’ve got a train to catch.
