tooting couple

the weirdest couple I ever saw
yeah I saw them 
waiting for the green man
to appear outside the station, 
a tooting pair
they looked proper strange, I swear 
they looked like they were from another world
he: blond dreadlocks, a raggedy bum
she: beside him with a definitive bump
she kept stroking it, her unborn
her frizzy black hair swayed wildly 
in the background
and she didn't wait for the green man
no, she crossed the road without him
without green man, without blond dreadlocks
and he was in too much of a daze to realise
until she called him from the other side
a strange tooting couple
a couple,
 of interesting human folk
...dying breed, perhaps not...
