#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘A Train Ride to Brum’

#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘A Train Ride to Brum’

A Train Ride To Brum.

The train rumbles & rolls
over rusty rails.
Gazing from the window,
I watch.
Seeing lush green embankments
which fade down
to dull, dark, dusty wasteland.
The trees once tall and majestic
now look sad and depleted.
They are small and skeletal,
like anorexic teenagers.
No blossom as yet fills these trees,
they currently bloom with a spectacular display of
plastic carriers,
and a vast array of other exotic waste foliage.
Reaching to the heavens they forever seek solace
in the warm spring sun.
