Metropolis, And The London Tube

Lawrence_original_3-1by Lawrence Estrey03 May 2019

The great metropolis

Sound of traffic

Steel grey sky

Hint of a chill

The underground tunnel

Commuters wait

The train approaches

Wheels slow and clanky

The passengers board


Silent, brooding perhaps

The journey begins

Through the tunnel

Out into the open

Past landmarks

Houses and factories and hills

The journey ends

The strangers descend

Another day on the tube
