Ticket prices are way too high
Aiming high to reach the sky
Boris needs to sort things out
Can he not hear the scream and shout

We the people will prevail
To help nationalisation of our rail
Oh the sound of merry people humming
Come to me ye if you need a good hard bumming.

That's brilliant. Got your marker-pen ready to go?

So is the idea of the subject matter for these poems using the non-mainstream; saved from a boring cliche of rush hours & businessmen.
