Poetry on the underground

Does yours go round
stuffed in a rucksack
packed with explosive verse
on the London underground?

Is yours shredded
before its prime?
Does the poetry police
reconstruct piece
by puzzling piece
literally - crimes?

Are you a live wire
a former grim reaper
is your deepest desire
to be or not to be
on the underground?
