I’m sitting in a railway station, got a ticket to my destination
I know I’m a poet, but the credit for those lines goes to a certain Paul Simon. I thought of them today when in Victoria Station.
It is said that Simon wrote that song while waiting for a train at Widnes, which is not too far from here.
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
certainly has a period North-West feel to it.
Everywhere we go; everything we read; everything we listen to: there are always connections.
Except when the trains are on strike.
