Oxford Journey

  • I’m on my way
    to town today
    on an Oxford bus.

    I meet with my mates
    in the park
    We stay there till it’s getting dark.

    Now I’m cold and covered in mud
    I stroll back to the bus stop
    It’s warm and dry back on the bus
    Returning from my Oxford journey.
