Have you ever seen a First Class Freddie?
The kind of man who’s always ready
To travel in comfort and in style
Whether it’s a long distance trip
Or just a mile

Briefcase in hand and suit tailor-made
Ticket in hand and out on parade
He wants everybody to see
How the grass is greener, the sun more golden
When you travel in luxury

And unlike the rest us riding the train
Or sailing by boat or flying by plane
His weary traveller’s blues are beat
By calling a shoeshiner over
To shine the shiny shoes on his feet.

First Class Freddie - A short funny poem about a class commuter.
