I knew her name and her address
I couldn’t help but hear
With mobile stuck to eardrum
She wasn’t even sitting near

She thought she was in a bubble
That somehow sealed off sound
Or why would she give her email
To everyone around

I learnt she was complaining
About her orders non arrival
With details of her credit card
Bang goes security survival

I didn’t mean to eavesdrop
But volume meant no choice
If you must use mobiles on the train
Why not just mute your voice!

  1. I suffered from the mobile hassle every day when I road Southern Rail to work...Though it was mostly children loudly telling parents 'I'm on the train -can you meet me at Havant?'
