All Alone On Platform 6
Author: Ben Franklin


Here I am again on
platform 6,
ushering people to there destination,
Wife's at home with the kids.

People demanding information,
no more polite conversation,
just a fast paced nation.

Manager is always on my back,
telling me......
'Ben people skills you lack,
if you carry on with this behaviour
you will end up getting the sack'.

I dont go to work to be insulted,
now I see why the slaves revolted.

Thousands of different people pass through these gates
each day,
but I still feel invisible to the world,

someone please build me a bridge,
because Im all alone on platform
