Railway Telephone


There was a telephone ringing on a twilight railway station.
The passengers waiting on the platform were wearing
wool coats, fur coats, leather gloves.
There’s a baby crying in the waiting room.
You’re going to have to make yourself useful here!
Hold that baby so that the mother can do something
about the telephone.

You hold the baby and the phone stops ringing.
The baby stops crying.
A voice speaks into the phone like a crossword puzzle.
You have to fill in the blanks to try and understand what’s going on.
