Riding in the kiddies section all day long at an amusement park
Underestimating the number of people crowding every turn
Noticed a train pass by ……… hmmmmmmm???????….
Always wondered what a thrill it would be……..
Walking toward the loading Depot with anticipation
A fear grips my t-shirt and begins to pull me back
“You sure you want to board this large train”? Fear whispers
The conductor begins his call …”All Aboard!”…….”ALL ABOARD!!!”
Recorded history begins to play and then .. click, clack .. chookie …choo …choo
And the loudest whistle I’ve ever heard , TOOOOT….TOOOOOOOT
I grip Mama’s neck and begin to scream loud sounds of my own
Never again will I board an 8 MPH runaway train ==============
