Hallo Ihr Lieben!
Ich brauche dringend Hilfe bei dem Gedicht "Commuter" von Alan Maley! Hat das vielleicht schon mal einer von euch gelesen? Ich muß das nämlich komplett analysieren mit allem was dazu gehört! Wäre echt super wenn mir einer vor morgen früh um 8 noch helfen könnteEmotion: smile

COMMUTER

He lives in a house in the suburbs
He rises each morning at six
He runs for the bus to the station,
Buys his paper and looks at the pics.
He always gets in the same carriage,
Puts his briefcase up on the rack.
Thinks miserably of his office,
And knows he can never turn back.
He gets to his desk by nine thirty,
Wondering what he should do.
When the coffee break comes at eleven,
He knows he still hasn't a clue.
His lunch break is quite uninspiring
He sits it out in the canteen
It's fish and chipe,mince or patatoes,
A choice that's quite literary obscene.
At five he runs back to the station,
Gets in the same carriage again,
Unfolds his evening paper,
Pulls a veil down over his brain.

Of course by bus!!!!
He runs for the bus to the station,
Buys his paper and looks at the pics.
He always gets in the same carriage,
Puts his briefcase up on the rack.

By bus and by train.

He goes by bus to the train station.
Only trains have carriages.
Only train carriages have overhead racks.

Pulls a veil down over his brain- is this line a paradox..?
