About Canada:

I am a commuter today!

Took the “rocket” to work

To save money and energy.

Sure, it's cheaper than driving,

And a lot faster than my bike!

I walked, I climbed the stairs

And down, I stretched my legs.

I smiled at strangers,

Clashed with some chaps.

No bad or dangerous drivers

But the crowd is more like a road rage.

I like the scene inside the subway,

People seem to mind their own business.

This rapid transit is amusing,

There’s even entertainment at the platform.

Singers and musicians staging talents,

Young lovers holding hands and capering.

I don’t mind taking the subway

Except when I’m next to a commuter

Who's snoring and drooling or next to a buddy

Whose body smells like garlic or the

One whose coat smells like a morgue!

So, welcome aboard the rocket,

This is your F.A. speaking

In English not in French,

Enjoy your ride!

      Thank you Susan. Appreciate your visit. It's maybe an old system now but I still enjoy my subway commute. It could be entertaining sometimes. :)

      I'm glad you enjoyed the poem.

      Thank you Rosemay50. Appreciate your comment. I was reading your profile and if I may borrow: "I never feel more satisfied than when someone enjoys one of my poems." You have a lovely profile and that profile picture is adorable. Cheers!
