BODY SHELL BOTHER

BODY SHELL BOTHER

Not talking about women’s lives,

‘Though maybe the “STEPFORD WIVES?”

Thought it simple

To match every dimple,

BOY. was I in for surprise!

Manufacturer’s models can be,

Varied as one-two three…

At least two kinds

With subtle lines

That may not fit your body.

I’ll just have to make do,

I can’t afford more than one or two…

Fine handrails mangled

And novice nerves jangled,

I’m glad some were easier to do!

BEGGED-FOR BODY SHELLS

BEGGED-FOR (N SCALE) BODY SHELLS

Anywhere a railfan dwells,

He or she is looking for shells…

Not from bullets or crab

But engines to nab,

That nearly no one sells!

Accordingly when a sale

Rises its head, must prevail…

Stoking memory

With shells we see

And put over chassis to sail the rail!
