People Watching

Here’s a poem I wrote on the bus yesterday, trying something different, ended up going in quite a different direction to that I intended…

People Watching!
There’s time to kill,
People Watching!
Seats to fill,
People Watching!
Scope the view,
People Watching!
See the people watching you…
People Watching!
Feel self conscious
People Watching!
Check your conscience
People Watching!
Hide your secrets
People Watching!
Bury your Regrets
People Watching!
Sitting and staring
People Watching!
Standing and swearing
People Watching!
What’s their problem?
People Watching!
Will you help solve them?
People Watching!
Is that a knife?
People Watching!
Do you fear for life?
People Watching!
It’s escalated…
People Watching!
Is that thing serrated?
People Watching!
Think of the damage it could do!
People Watching!
Well, it’s up to you…
People Watching!
Do you call the Police
People Watching!
Or do you pray for Peace?
People Watching!
Leave them with no witnesses,
People Watching!
Let them resolve their witlessness,
People Watching!
Do you watch them hurting?
People Watching!
Or do you close the curtain?
People Watching!
Do you make a stand?
People Watching!
Will you lend a hand?
People Watching!
It’s always a choice
People Watching!
To raise your Voice
People Watching!
And if you do
People Watching!
Have no fear of the people…
Watching you!
