Headphones - Poem by Phil Soar

It really was misfortune that led my mind astray
I was listening to the radio and had fallen by the way
Wrapped up in all the music, and bopping to the beat
I forgot to put my shoes on when I walked out in the street
I didn't really notice until I had to break my stride
The bus I should have caught for work was early to arrive
And as it sped away and left me humming to a tune
I realised the next one wasn't due until twelve noon
So I tried to run and catch it, but my feet refused to cope
The paving slabs uneven, so I hadn't any hope
So I think I learned a lesson, as I very soon found out
When I'm due to put my shoes on, I should take the headphones out
