Ode to the Rail Runner

RailRunner rides that same old line.
It’s good! It’s good! You’ll see, in time.
Ne’er mind the costs, we’re going to town!
What? How many more die till we shut it down?
Bill’s ok. He’s at his station.
“Let’s just have an investigation”
Our schools are crumbling. That’s ok!
We’ll hold classes, anyway!
Learn to drive!
Avoid Railrunner! Stay alive!
Engineers wasted. Families too.
What’s all the fuss? All the ado?
Ne’er mind the costs, we’re going to town.
What? How many more die till we shut it down?
We’ll spend more, make it safer!
Money from oil and gas and oh, the taxpayer!
We can afford it. Yes we can!
What’s the matter with you, man?
Education be damned! RailRunner is mighty!
Ne’er mind those kids, we know they’re flighty.
We’re doing things right. They’ll ride the rails.
One day it will all be just a tale.
RailRunner, RailRunner we long for more.
And, Sister SpacePort is at the fore.
Legislators of sense not common.
Let’s say a prayer. Amen.
— Vic Bruno
