Just the ticket?

Just the ticket?

The British Heart Foundation,

with the best of intentions,

offers high blood pressure tests

in salons, pubs and train stations.

But the latter is the worst place

to conduct such health checks

considering that passengers face

high fares, delays, cancellations;

the very cause of hypertension.
