Villanelle: Terminal 420

When I visited the Port of Antwerp in October 2014 with the ETF Women's Committee, we were due to go to a particular terminal - but it was closed, after a seafarer was killed while a ship was being loaded the previous day. The port is staffed only by registered dockers, under rules similar to the UK's National Dock Labour Scheme, abolished by the Tories in the 1980s.

Money for the Dunny

I'm writing this verse on the toilet
A priv'lege that cost me the Earth
Forty p for to pee is an outrage
I'm determined to use all it's worth

I'll sit on the throne til my train comes
It's a platform, and I'm in no rush
They are piping departure announcements
Through a speaker that's next to the flush

We Apologise for the Disruption

Tweets of distress from Peterborough
The text all drenched in fears

Signal failure - help us please -
Bring crosswords, cake and beers

We've been stuck here for two whole hours.
Now wipe away your tears

And count yourself lucky, I tweet back -
I was stuck there eleven years
