bus ticket poem by steven james humphreys
Life's ups and downs

bus ticket

I bought my bus ticket to nowhere I’m invisible now thin as air drinking Coronas in the

back sold all my stuff I’m travelling light changed my name gave up my fame I’m a fly by

night hack by day wherever I go no one knows me I hide from the world like a boy turned girl

I wear the cloak I pitch up a tent I do what I want I pay no rent I’m free now cut the reigns off my plow lost my way gained freedom sings loud earned my wings I fly away I grew from a green worm into a sweet butterfly.
