#76: London Underground

London Underground
You want to go all the way to the end of the line
just to see where it goes
maybe one day you might actually fly out of Heathrow
that’s the dream isn’t it?
flying out of Heathrow
to somewhere else
Here’s great
I really like it here
but it’s nice to think you can get away
when you need to
when you want to.

We always come back
we have to come back
cause there’s a test
or it’s gran’s birthday
and I need to look after my brother
mum would be mad if we weren’t there
because dad’s going out
and I should probably be cramming my head full of methods and equations
or finishing that essay

But when that all gets a bit too much
before our heads can stop us
we ride on the Tube
underneath the streets
away from the lights
down dark tunnels
with commuters and tourists
on a deep dark winter night
This is the Piccadilly Line service
to Heathrow Terminal 4
and 1, 2, 3
