WHY HE DOESN’T READ LADIES’ MAGAZINES!

WHY HE DOESN’T READ LADIES’ MAGAZINES!

He bought a GOOD HOUSEKEEPING,
Caught by the cover photo…
Of Kyra Sedgewick posing
Like someone he wanted to know.

The Table of Contents sufficient
For a magazine slick and fat…
The perfume page at the beginning,
For him, it was “old hat”.

He started to shiver looking further inside,
It wasn’t as it once was…
He felt he’d invaded foreign ground
And felt like he’d chewed down fuzz.

His adventure wasn’t as used to be,
Entering forbidden ground…
The pictures were fine but he’d had enough
To put the icky thing down!

ADVENTURE BECKONS!

(GOOGLE)

ADVENTURE BECKONS!

Where does this narrow gauge

Set of rails lead…

Heavier than amusement park rails,

Is it real steam engines we’ll see?

Do they carry freight for photographers

Or actually work….

Hauling stuff economically,

No suitable job to shirk?

I don’t remember where the picture’s from

But I know such lines exist…

Where real trains run just beyond that curve,

Appearing from the mist!
