Discover Prompts, Day 16: Slow

Journey by train
Chug a lug chug a lug in comes the train
The old man waiting so long
quickly swallowed the pill of pain.
Every one ready yells the conductor
No sir I need a second more
Replies the burly passenger.
What the crowd shout in unison
You need more time to do what
I have to swallow my last bite
Crazy people thwart me not.
The crowd watched in silence
As the man emptied his plate
Suddenly they heard a pitiful cry
how much longer do we have to wait
Mama, the boy sighed!
