 June 1-30 Challenge – Day 29 – Track Twenty-nine

No track twenty-nine this time

Making my escape from a life of crime

Crime inflicted on my body since birth

Train carriages beating a tune along the line

Echoing as we rounded the corners

Help save me, life not for mourners

What the future holds no one knows

Sheep scatters as the wheels beat a tune.

It’s time now, it’s time now,

Time what for?

What happens when the train reaches the platform

Will my life be measured by more pain

Or will it be back to track twenty-nine

To depart again singing “The Chattanooga Choo Choo” song.
