Walked from cinema, streets black in hue
Flashing lights shone, the bus gleamed new
Tumbling rain drizzled, neon lights blue
The bus-stop beckoned a threatening due.
My beat had quickened, pacing heart too
Looking to the left, my stomach ached through
Three homeless slept cold, braving the dew
Feeling guilt I shrivelled, sorrow told true.
Flashing lights cracked breaching the sky
Warning a clap, booming a-nigh
Waited in rain for 4 2 5
Street lights flickered, rain withered and died
Hopping aboard, I hustled to sit
Nearing the back I found an abyss
Eyes leered behind and burned anear
I was being watched for no iphone was here
Android shone brightly, mapping my way
GPS directed me traversing its way
Broken white lines twisted and turned
Fulfilling the ride all choppy and churned
Amber shone dimly, passing a must
The route steered right, passing a bus
Drawing to station, passenger alone
Holding her hand – signalled to throne
Red lights shone, doors flung in debate
No welcome aboard, sat driver in wait
Fighting her way drawn to a close
Rested her head to a nearer abode
The bus tunnelled, white tiled once new
Main road arrived, traffic was few
Darting our way from pillar to post
My destination seemed so handsomely close
My trip had finished, a walk was due
My saddened thought had made me blue
I wished I had helped the poor three men
I knew I must return to them
Tomorrow I will make a vow
To brighten their night somehow
I wish to make them feel anew
For this is something I must do.

Don’t be stubborn.
Be assertive and caring in what you do.
You will become a better person if you do.
Until next time – Happy Shooting!
