I had a long wait for the bus
Bad timing - Sunday afternoon
So I resigned myself - one must;
Buses never come too soon.
Beside me stood another dame
And we got talking, as you do
As this is Belgium – why complain?
We'd both be late for rendezvous...
But lo! A bus hove into sight
Empty – just right for us two
No other passengers alight
Soon the metro came in view.
Hours later quite by chance we found
Ourselves together once again
Making the journey homeward bound
The return procedure was the same!
No other passengers on board
We thought it strange that this should be
But it seems the STIB can now afford
To «taxi» us from A to B!
