A dark train is coming
I heard the whistle blow yesterday.
Today I saw its black smoke rising
against the dark blue sky.
Her passengers are doomed
their faces smeared and eyes darkened
they’ve been fired from the jobs
that they could not maintain.
From the way things look around here
chaos has it’s home.
Justice will be brought because
you are holding that red ticket.
When tomorrow comes and that track burns hot
all that steel will be screaming to a halt.
We’ll all wave goodbye as you climb aboard
with a smearing face and darkening eyes.
