Going the distance


Sad and distant grows the weary tune

The clickety clack now hardly a tap

Remorseful in her glum temperament

Still she dares not begin to turn back

For onward she must chug along

Continuing on her chosen course

And even though the hills are steep

She’s still a strong reckoning force

The grime and filth still covers her

And her stacks are in need of repair

But this little engine will never give up

As long as the mission is still there
