Back by popular demand, here is Roberto's verse about the Busker. You can't visit London without seeing him if you travel by train, over or under the capital. He's almost a daily entertainer on the rails, and on platforms, in the huge station foyers, even outside stations, too, almost in all weather.
Roberto was entertained by this icon of the metropolis in the comfort of a carriage. Our poet dug deep, naturally, when the, er, maestro came round for sponsorship.
The verse first appeared here three years ago and has remained a firm favourite with Roberto's followers.
Busker on the tube
On the mechanical way, to the mechanical day,
You're loved and you're hated and society bated,
