the sound of pre-adolescence
invades the train
quite unexpected
nothing is sacrosanct
except being cool!
the slagging is immediate
back and forth like
table tennis balls
a day’s outing
but the regulars are not amused
and i thought i was getting
set in my ways
as the teasing continues
the banter contagious
these young people
need no supervision
their good nature is honest
and apparent
which is more than i can say
for the regulars

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
