Bus Stop

One
 
Fifteen years ago I ran for a bus at the central railway station
I caught the bus and struck up a conversation with a girl called Lola
She is now my wife

Fifteen years ago I ran for a bus at the central railway station
But the driver did not wait for me so I caught a train to the next village
Whilst on this train I met a girl called Olga who was visiting her sister
We dated for a while but as she lived in the capital city this proved difficult
Slowly our romance faded but we still correspond

Fifteen years ago I ran for a bus at the central railway station
But the driver had been taken ill
So I had to wait for the replacement driver
Whilst waiting I struck up a conversation with a girl called Astrid
She told me that she was on the run as she had assassinated the Prime Minister
I had no reason to disbelieve her as our Prime Minister had been assassinated
Our bus was later cancelled as the replacement driver had been further delayed
We agreed to walk back to my hotel so that we might spend some time together
My companion was arrested outside of the hotel as I had alerted the authorities whilst taking a leak
She was sentenced to life in prison for her crime
 I visit her once a week at the grey prison in the capital city
She has no idea who betrayed her
