On the Train (#16)

by David Subacchi

Tell me something 
Is it Saint Pancreas or Saint Pankers 
You wot 
The station 
Umm, it’s deffo not Pancreas 
Cos, Pancreas is like your kidneys 
Yea, like your insides 
It’s a station 
I know but... 
Must be Pankers then 
Wot line is it on 
Dunno, it’s just a station 
Must be Saint Pankers then 
No, that sounds wrong 
Well it’s one or the other 
Saint Kidneyminster 
I’ve heard of that 
You’re daft you are 
So are you.
