The Concrete Jungle

Mind the Gap

Walking the monopoly board
Familiar signs at every turn
Childish excitement Unhidden for all to see
But I’m a nobody here
Just one of many
It’s everyday life for you
Everyday sights for you
For me it’s a dream come true.

A taxi beeps, a bus roars by
Another station to who knows where
Dark deep tunnels
Stuffy no air
Keep to the right
The rules to be followed
Rules I don’t live by
Today I must live by
….and mind the gap lest you fall.

One thought on “Mind the Gap

  1. very thought provoking. the importance of a life, a dream, unseen by the world spinning around them.

    wanting to go against the herd. But for today I will go with them for I dont want to fall.

    I have heard once two or more becomes truth.

    thankyou. 🙂
