Skeeved Out

I squeezed into a subway seat
So I was wedged between
A backpack someone wouldn’t move
And someone not too clean.

I tuned them out, began to read
But barely had the chance
When scruffy guy got going
With his hand inside his pants.

He wasn’t very subtle,
His intentions very clear
And no one in the subway
Had the guts to interfere.

So I got up and moved away
Before he could conclude,
But such a sleazy spectacle
Still left me quite unglued.

We put up with a lot on trains,
But all of us should scoff
At behavior meant for privacy – 
And throw the jerk right off!

    If this is true, God help us all, has it come to this. What happened to the good ole days when in public they just kissed. ;/

    I love how you can write about anything and everything with a rhyme scheme that is amazing. And you write with such flare. And I love how you season your poems with humor, and a touch of satire. I always look forward to what you will come up with next.
