I Sleep Alone
by The Night Owl
Anyone coming for a ride on the night train?, come on, jump
on board it's dead easy. It's all in the preparation. If you're
with me on this one, this is what you need for the journey ahead.
One laptop, check. One bag of skunk, check. One cup of tea, check.
That's all you need , now come on hurry up, the guard's just
blew his whistle, the night train is about to leave.
First thing to do once on board , is to find your pit and get
yourself comfy by 1) rolling a big fat hunky dorie doobie. 2)
smoking doobie 3) sip simmering brew.
Right that's the first part of the journey over, as we now pull in
to Armitage Shanks Station. You should now make use of the toilet
facilities on offer at the station. This means brushing ones teeth
and relieving ones bladder, because next up is the longest part of
the trip and there will be no toilets stops on this lengthy and
Right, Fix headphones to ears and put pillow behind head (helps
with the neck pain). Laptop on lap. The next part involves the use
of all the jumbled up mad mumbo jumbo floating around in your
brain and somehow, try and make use of it through the medium of
the laptop. These visions should finally end up as words on the
computer screen. Sometimes it comes easy, sometimes hard . Easy or
hard? it doesn't matter, as it's nailed on you won't get off
the train till you've reached it's final destination. Which is the
station called 'The suns coming up, so it's top up bronzy time on
the balcony and sleep till noon........again!'
