Train to Work by Chichichapatile Mangochi

POEM: A train to work

A poem by Chichichapatile Mangochi

BY CHICHICHAPATILE MANGOCHI

Thirty minutes of walking in rain
Takes me to Southfield

To catch a train
To work. And not in a field

In a house to clean and make beds
Until the sun hits the western horizon.

The train is full
Youngsters are dangling like monkeys outside

A young pastor without a beard or crown bald
Reminds us of our real destination
