Just the idea of laying steel track,
Evenly spaced, there and back,
Boggles the brain.
But then - to build a train?
That makes the laying
Of track... seem like mere playing.
Harnessing explosive forces
To outpull a thousand horses...
How exactly is that done?
I wonder whether I'm the only one
Who's awestruck, as we glide along the rails,
At just how rarely this thunder beast fails.
