Today’s Short #Poem 161

Popping Over the Platform

They call them maisonettes
half a house really
We’ve got the bottom half
we didn’t want any stairs

They’re new, built on scrap land
near the train station
I like the walk, change of scenery
go for a cigarette

You’re not supposed to smoke
on platforms – but no one cares
A few vagrants, and yobbos
at night
