Take A Fast Train
High Speed Train.........A Poem
Steel horse with your armoured casing
Your smooth advancing motion holds travellers in womb like rhythm
Rocking in silent comfort as their journey proceeds in rapid pace
Unrelentless you speed from city to city
Your purpose, transportation, commute of the mortal
Loved ones brought together in long awaited triumph
Happily rejoined with sealed kisses and desperate hugs of joy.
The businessman in suit with laden briefcase
Company to represent , his mobile phone at hand
Holiday makers boarding with suitcases , off to adventures anew
Back pack wearing students making plans for the coming term
Now regretting wasted study time spent in slumber.
All at rest, some even sleep inside your cavernous compartments
Your horizontal tube, discarded newspapers decorating tables
Ever changing scenery outside your speeding windows
Light turns to dusk as you devour the miles.
You whisk the tourist upon dream journeys
To discover long imagined destinations
Now no longer ignorant to pages in their travel guides
Real, life changing experience to share with others upon return.
Master of the track, sleek in new design
In your conquering race you reach new unimagined speeds
You edit mans travel through time
Ignore the motorway, make the car deceased
Providing ever swift travel for the people you serve,
As did your predecessors in their turn
Modern time machine in daily service to the thankful masses.
