This poem was given an Honourable Mention in Brian Strand's "BRIAN'S SELECT 2" Poetry Contest.

There are 270 stations on The London Underground (aka'The Tube') and yet..


St John's Wood is the only station as crazy as it may sound that shares no letters with 'mackerel' on the London Underground.

Ha, ha, ha, ha! I'd give you first prize for this one. Gotta think of a name for the contest though. Maybe 'All Aboard.' … Thanks for the chuckle! :) gw

Glad you had a chuckle Gershon and thanks to your comments I've renamed the poem too! Why it didn't come to me before, I don't know..It's now called "Mind The Gap" - You have to have ridden the tube to understand that one but it's a taped warning that is played everytime people get on / off the train. Cheers :) Gary

Thank you Mo! :) I like the idea of placing a weird fact into the heart of a rhyme. :)
