The Victoria Line

I got on the Victoria Line at Brixton,

Bedazzled by a Bowie tribute at the Ritzy,

I had a Bacardi Breezer hangover,

Through Pimlico to Warren Street I felt ditzy.

I reached Highbury and Islington,

On board were jubilant, energetic Arsenal football fans,

They sang as the train travelled through North London,

Walthamstow Central, East London the train stops and finally lands.

    As a Londoner myself and from years experience travelling into town on the Piccadilly Line this resonates. Great work Fine - hope to see more.

    Many thanks Michael. Nice to hear from a fellow Londoner.

    Glad you liked the poem!

    I have written several more poems on the London Underground and different lines which I shall upload in due course.

    Although I know I'll never have the wonderful experience of crossing the pond to see your beautiful country and city, your poem here makes me want to be there only more. And yes, BLONDIE ROCKS!

      Hi Accidental Poet,

      Glad that you liked this poem. Never say never. You never know you may make it to London.

      One of the cleaning staff where I work is a devout Christian and always wanted to go to the Holy Land. However, she felt she could not because of finances and her age. You know what she ended up going miraculously and came back healed and whole from her wonderful experience there.

              Thanks for the ride my friend... took me back a bit so ya did... I would also agree Debbie Harry is still a looker... just for the record.. I saw Bowie live three times.. the first time in 1973 and admission was only 80 pence still got the ticket.... N

                Hello Neville

                Happy New year!

                Glad you enjoyed the poem!

                Wow Bowie only for 80p in the Seventies!

                Off to see The Eagles this year at Wembley Stadium well it was more than 80p for the ticket.

                Keep writing.
