THIS TRAIN

THIS TRAIN

All aboard! the conductor yells out loud,

Show your tickets, this train makes its sound.

A western world, you’ll be taken for a ride,

Journey too many places, from this train you’ll see.

From out of your window a cattle drive is noticed,

A cowboy travels from town to town.

In the distance Indians do their own thing,

This train bound for a new life for some.

It’s a chance you take riding a train,

Robbers on horses have trouble on their minds,

In a western world, a dangerous time.

One thought on “THIS TRAIN

  1. I feel that this poem is like many dreams I have had. Though mine, while still depicting a western world violently changed, features a lot lead a stray by a fake notion of a helping hand. Thank you for sharing.
