More London Underground Tube Haikus

Crikey what a response to yesterday's entry. I knew we would give Metro newspaper a run for their money.
Jag has come up with some crackers and my favourites of his are below:

When you feel unwell
Leave train at the next station
Curl up on platform

Hammersmith station
Grey pigeons on vacation
From every nation

Check out Jag's picture of a pigeon on the tube or my page on Pigeon Commuters for more of this.

Go to Hell and back.
Via Bank. But don't get off there!
Morden is grimmer.

Stanmore: 5 mins says
dot matrix indicator.
5 mins later: Same.

And an excellent contender from Kuad:

Let people out first
Not "charge through the doors first thing"!
Die, you bastards, die.

I think that's influenced by our cheerful drivers' announcements on the tube.

Keep them coming in through the comments link and I'll post more of Jag's up later to illustrate common tube experiences.

In case anyone is interested, here's the Metro one that started off the whole thing:

Ah, the train-sleeper
He dreams on in half light
that carried him in
