On the Metro


These chatters will talk
The way that rabbits breed
Banging on and on
The girl on the back seat
Would rather count sheep
And the lady in the Sunday church hat
Would prefer a sermon to all that
Bibble-babble pitter-patter

English reticence went out when
The fashion didn't crave it
These women have stories
Coming out of their beady ears
Each stream of vituperations
Grips them like white-water rafting
What else is a girl to do for kicks?
Keep quiet? Adore the cityscape?
Plot life's escape route through the clouds?
Rummage in a scrap heap for gold nuggets?
Tackle the question of ME?
