Fight

We CARING MEN (!) DO HEAR YOU!

The world we live in
Is a man’s world where women
Are preys or slaves.

The time has come to fight back
And destroy patriarchy.

NARROW-MINDED COMMERCE

In American railroad practice,

Narrow gauge is considered fractious…

For main line runs

To earn enough funds,

To prevent its system contractions.

‚Äď

Except for industries,

No main line narrow gauge breathes..

Just tourist lines run

As heritage for fun,

Revenues restoring each historic piece.

‚Äď

In Europe and overseas,

Freight trains in several countries…

Still use narrow gauge

Railroads of great age,

Paying taxes and fees.

‚Äď

So go and see while you can,

Who knows how long their life span…

Some are subsidized

To have useful lives,

Where trucks are not in demand.

ADULT TRAINS…by Jonathan Caswell

(GOOGLE IMAGES)

ADULT TRAINS

 

Remember that LGB ad once in print

With a train running through shapely legs…

Or the LIONEL showroom layout with a starlet perched on it,

Implications for adult men it begs!

‚Äď

No longer just the circle of track

Going ’round a Christmas tree…

Being put away until next year

Model trains are a MAN’S HOBBY!

‚Äď

The engine that this babe sits on

Can weigh nearly two hundred pounds…

Try to get a kid to rerail this beast

When it goes out of bounds?!?

‚Äď

A Model Railroading film I know

Has dancing girls…well-clothed…

Some of the equipment I’ve seen advertised

Takes a chunk of income disposed.

‚Äď

The woman who supports her man to do his thing

Is a jewel of rare import…

It just so happens I have myself one,

A wife who is in my court!
