Rush Hour
Copyright George Papavgeris, April 2007

(Beggar):
ho will pay the price of a cup of tea
Just to keep me warm
Who will stop and give me the time of day
Sitting in this corner all alone.

(Waiter/waitress):
One more day of taking orders
Smiling like a mime
Aching back and aching shoulders
Serving folks and serving time
Lunch is standing in the kitchen
Barely half awake
And the customers are bitching
Come good fortune, give me a break!

(News seller):
Evening papers, read the stories
Who's in bed with whom
Labour fighting with the Tories
But both sing the same old tune.
Middle East again is brewing
Isn't that a shame!
And celebrities are queuing
For their quarter hour of fame.

(beggar):
Who will pay the price of a cup of tea
Just to keep me warm
Who will stop and give me the time of day
Sitting in this corner all alone.

(Taxi Driver):
One more day of dodging traffic
Stuck behind the wheel
Taking orders through the static
Monday to Friday same old deal
Eat your sandwich while you fill 'er
Keep your licence clean
Fourteen hours, it's a killer
Come good fortune, change to green!

(News seller):
Evening papers, read about it!
Murdered in her home
And the neighbours all astounded
Never knew she lived alone.
Eighty people hurt and bleeding
In the market place
Fifty pence discount from leading
Creams to wipe years from your face

(beggar):
Who will pay the price of a cup of tea
Just to keep me warm
Who will stop and give me the time of day
Sitting in this corner all alone.

(Office Worker):
One more day of presentations
Dancing like a seal
Try to keep your concentration
Stay awake, you'll miss the deal
One more day of talking numbers
Meetings wall to wall
Mind the snakes and climb the ladders
Come good fortune, end it all!

(News seller):
New Orleans is under water
Famine in Sudan
People queue for Harry Potter
Up till midnight down the Strand
Lives with logic but no reason
Madness by degree
And tonight another season
Of Big Brother on TV
