Tickets Please - Poem by jerry hughes

Tickets please.
Sorry, what was that?
I said, tickets please.
Oh, yes, I had one.
Had one?
Bought it yesterday.

Did you get one today?
Did I have to?
Yes, you're only valid daily.
That's strange, I didn't feel
at all vaild yesterday.
Doesn't matter.
Tickets please.
