Miz Quickly’s Day 12 “Tuesday”

Boys On The Tracks

The air is bristling nerves

The engine coughs
The carriage rocks

The boys are on the tracks

The whistle blows
The driver sweats
It rolls into his eyes

These boys are trouble
The tracks do rumble
The train’s horn toots again

The boys jump aside
As if riding wings, and

The boys survive another day.

    1. Yes, as would the train drivers. It’s a horrendous experience for them.

  3. I’ve watched a few shows with trains and their engineers… Not easy to stop at all.
