Coming Into The Station

CCC#20

I hear the train’s whistle blow

It isn’t going all that slow

Everyone get off the tracks

This is no time to relax

Pulling into the station

People waiting in anticipation

You can hear the brakes squeal

All that power, all that steel

Everyone off, it’s the last stop, the conductor yells

It’s time for everyone to expel

People leaving the train

Some want to remain

But it’s the end of the line

The ride was divine

  1. I loved riding the trains when I lived in Germany long ago. Haven’t been on one since. This makes me miss them.
