Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

 1
 
 
 
 
 
 
I’m at the station its quarter to nine “hurry” “hurry”
 2
The train is waiting on the line
 3
People rushing pushing past
 4
They really are moving fast
 5
I have to get inside the train
 6
My feet are really feeling the strain
 7
Inside the train it is so packed
 8
I feel so tired really whacked
 9
I want a seat but there isn’t any
 10
Seats a few people too many
 11
I have to stand I have no choice
 12
But then I hear a strange man’s  voice
 13
 
 
 
 
TICKETS PLEASE………….
 14
 
 
 
 
Where is my ticket shit what have I done
 15
I can not find it my bag is undone
 16
I start to panic I feel so hot
 17
Where is my ticket silly I’m not
 18
People are staring let me be
 19
This could only happen to me
 20
My bag has been emptied all over the floor
 21
I cannot take this anymore
 22
 
 
“YES”
 23
 
 
I  have it my ticket is here
 24
Stuck to my hairbrush covered in hair
 25
The train is going down the line
 26
The time is now quarter past nine
 27
I hope I enjoy the rest of the day
 28
Relax at last I’m on my way
 29
