With Apologies to Real Poets Everywhere...

Sitting on Metro

I'm sitting on Metro
Nearing my stop
You stumble in and
On my bench plop

You're smelly and scuzzy
All unaware
Of the discomfort you're bringing
By sittin' in my chair

My station draws nearer
I'm most polite
"Excuse me...Excuse me...Excuse me"
I don't want to fight

But you cannot notice
You've blocked the world
I quietly object
"I'M TRYING TO GET OFF THIS TRAIN, JERK-FACE! TAKE THOSE DANG HEADPHONES OFF, YOU LOSER, IF YOU CAN'T PAY ATTENTION TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS, YOU SULLEN, STINKY CHURL!"


Needs work, I guess.
