A Striking Soliloquy
tu be
or not
tu be

Tube strike Haiku
trains that are side-lined
idling in rusty sidings
fear the knacker's yard
* * *
tunnels empty now
can see the light at both ends
birds risk a short cut
* * *
rails sleeping, dream of
a parallel universe
a new perspective
* * *
platforms yawn and stretch
enjoying the holiday
mice minding the gap
