Token, Token where shall we go?




This is my token of freedom.

I need at least two of this each work day.

If I want to stop by the coffee shop on my way to work,

Or I need to run an errand on my way home,

I will be needing one more.



A tiny token, can go as far as the eyes can see

From one bus to another,

From one bus to a subway train

From one train to another

The fare will be the same.



One weekend I felt like going to the Mall

Two little tokens willing to get me there

I waited for a bus infront of our house

One token is all the driver need.



The bus stopped at the subway

I transferred to a subway train

I passed through tunnels, dark and deep

Until it went up and I have to take the LRT

I see green and trees and my destination



One token all the way to the mall

One token to ride them all

It is amazing for one tiny token

To get me to my most desired places

and one more to get me home sweet home

A warm tribute to a tiny but precious token. I bet its bowing its head as you narrate how important it is to you.

btw, nice new lay out :-)

Hehe...thanks Juleste! It's fall again...I thought i should get a fall color for my blog.

As for the precious token, it's really time to give it a show. I buy ten of them and i'm good for a week. There is a pass that is good for a month and it can be used to go anywhere.

thanks for dropping by!

Hi caryn!

Yup! You can transfer to as many connecting bus or to connecting subway trains and it only takes one token. One token for a one way trip.

Thanks for visiting!
