The Seven O' Eight Train.

Oh how I miss the Seven O' Eight train.

Its beautiful colours

Purple upon nausea-inducing green,

And white,

Yellow

And dark blue.

The broken seat in the front carriage.

The various train drivers,

Douglas,

Peter and many others.

Who announce that it is the Seven Thirty-Eight

Instead of the Seven O' Eight

Due to late nights and lack of caffeine.

Oh how I miss the Seven O' Eight train.

The announcement on platform two

For platform one does not exist in Clapham Junction

That the train on platform two

Is the Seven O' Eight to Willesden Junction,

Calling at West Brompton,

Kensington Olympia,

And Willesden Junction.

Oh how I miss the Seven O' Eight train.

Its delays were few and far between,

And it did not claim to go to Stratford

As the trains do now

Its wonderful burning of 3,500,000 calories

Between Kensington Olympia

And Clapham Junction

As Florence and I so profoundly calculated

OH HOW I MISS THE SEVEN O' EIGHT TRAIN!

It has been MURDERED by Silverlink Metro.

It is now the SEVEN O' FIVE train.

The SEVEN O' FIVE is not the same!

I think I'm going to cry.
