Busses conveying the 2nd Division to the Ypres sector passing through the town, along Herberg Street. Frank Hurley https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C392593

take
a bus
down herberg street

do some window shopping
in the rain

there’s no rush
and you can take
as much time
as you need

but
mind now
how you go
out there

keep the cobbles
beneath
your wheels

it’s a glue pot
on the other side

if you stray
you might be
gone

so keep it narrow

keep it
on the road

and I’ll see you
again
in just a day
or two

over the top
or
in the mire

either way
I’ll watch out
for you

and remember

we once met
on herberg street
