Fortune-teller

Sometimes, on Line 9
The train driver warns
All passengers
Over the sound system
“Beware, there are pickpockets
On the platform”
And, sure enough, you see them
Three girls, Romany
They heard the train driver
So they don’t move
One looks at her feet
One looks at the ads
One looks elsewhere
They’re funny and patient
They’ll take the next train
