Dominos at the Pay Station

It’s a way to practice patience

and we know, n’est ce pas, a Brit

will stand and shuffle, queue

pissed off:  a brick, a twit,

true grit

 

“Bright ones” step in turn (in turn)

towards a grinning box;

slotting plastic, coin and finger

to a mouth that spits out paper,

winks and lets them go.

  1. As a Brit I liked this--we aren't deferential, we just know it's quicker to queue:)
