Good To Be Busy?

by Tahera Mayat

Scribbling away, losing track of time

Then I hear the library clock chime

Must dash, I’ve got a train to catch!

Get to the door, undo the latch

Lock up quick, don’t panic…

Modern life can sometimes be manic

Barely noticing, as I run fast

Stares from people as I go past


Train arrives, surely now I can relax

But no stress levels approach the max

As I wait for the conductor and think about

Everything I need to now that I’m out


Oh what I wouldn’t give right now

To be in a café and oh how

I dream about hot chocolate and cake

Sometimes a leisurely day I’ll take
