Train poem today





With tracks a'gleam and a choo..choo...chooooo!
The smart express train comes rushing through!
With passengers a'plenty,
it's the eleven twenty...
running on time with a choo!..choo!...Chooooo!
Through the country with a choo..choo...chooooo!
'Neath morning sun, in a sky of blue!
With ecstatic smiles a'beam -
the holidaymakers' dream;
running on fine with a choo!..choo!...Chooooo!
Funnel stutters with a blow..blow...blow!
And this little train starts running slow!
With a chug...thud...pop!
Until the carriages stopped -
the track was gone...nowhere to go!..go!...Go!
So this little train went back..back...back!
from its dead-end, on a one way track!
Back to the station -
its only destination!
It crept in slow with a crack..crack...Crack!
With tracks a'gleam and a choo..choo...chooooo!
The express train comes a'crawling through!
With passengers a'plenty,
it's the seventeen twenty.....
running too late with a choo!..choo!...Chooooo!
