SILLY ALCO ENGINE!

The engine coughed to start,

Was really a diesel smoke fart…

Then it caught–

Ran like it ought–

Pouring out smoke very dark!

Every acceleration,

Like a conflagration…

Smoke would retch

Out til the catch

Up with operations!

Steam engines honorary,

Aren’t that ordinary…

Rail fans joke

About the smoke,

But cameras search out these quarry!
