On One

Is there any room

If not, I will walk

n.b. As a ten year old travelling to school I learned that the rush hour bus was often crowded, if not full. Walking on to the next stop, or even the one after next, meant that I had at least tried to change something for when the next bus came along.

It was usually raining.

On Numbers 20

There is a limit

But please, don’t worry yourself

Nobody’s counting
