Pictured a power plant,

Smallish–that I’ll grant–

Like one during a sally

Down Pig Alley,

Coal-fed from a trestle and conveyor sent.

Steam pipes underground,

Making steam pipe sounds…

In all the buildings

Radiators refilling,

On State Hospital grounds!

Bare patches steam across roads,

Where the big steam pipe goes…

In all directions

And intersections,

Into buildings and staff abodes.
