A Train Ride To Brum.
The train rumbles & rolls
over rusty rails.
Gazing from the window,
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
and a vast array of other exotic waste foliage.
Reaching to the heavens they forever seek solace
in the warm spring sun.
