Toll Queen

The girl
In the cage
Smiling
For a wage
Smiling
Beguiling
I pay.
To hear her say
Have a great day.
And her hand
Touches mine
Exchanging  coin
And making change
A limited range
Of conversation
And quick observation
Of the weather hot or cold
And then I’m told
Have a nice day.
I’m on my way
Happy to have seen
The toll queen
On the bridge
In a glass cage
Above my eye line.
Looking fine
Goodbye my love
Girl on the M5 toll.
