Humility



a Senior’s concession
train fare – not exactly
an event for celebration,
you’ll still have to stand


but if a station ticket
seller suggests it – the
correct response is to
be visibly pleased...


in effect it means you
get to travel standing
for twice the distance at
the same cost in humility
