System Living

Overheard Conversations on Public Transport

System Living

Here stands a man.

“What’s your plan?”

“To buy a house” the mouse

“Drink dry grouse” that louse, stuck on its back

“Wipe your feet on the welcome mat”

of his new stately flat

..he hangs like a bat in taxes,


“It’s oright”

*puts feet up*


When overhearing a conversation about new houses, mortgages, taxes and annoying co-workers, I decided to write this short poem on the mega bus—My thoughts about system living and how you moan about your 9 till 5 job but NEVER do anything about it.

Average joe.
