Drama at Selby station…

15 06 2015

Sat at Selby Station,
Waiting for a train,
I see a little beetley-thing
Emerging from a drain.

It runs across the platform
On legs wildly erratic
And hurls itself right off the edge –
Disturbingly dramatic.

Leaving Selby station
I ponder on its fate:
Unlike the train to Staleybridge*
The beetley-thing is late.

*Except I was travelling to York.  Staleybridge sounded better though.
