And yet again another train
gets cancelled as I leave
It’s becoming quite a habit
And I’m feeling a bit peeved

Eleven plus hour days are tough
So I’m looking forward to get home
But cancelled trains add one hour hour
Which irks me to the bone

Still, never mind, put on brave face
It’s what it is I guess
I’ll just have to sit and write some more
To alleviate the stress
