SPEAKING OF MINIATURE TRAIN TRACKS…

SPEAKING OF MINIATURE TRAIN TRACKS…

Just seeing that 009 Project,

He wants him a circle of track…

Two trains in opposite directions

And maybe an “out-and-back.”

He’d want it running for Christmas,

So many trains has he….

A test track sure would be convenient

When shunting the original’s boring.

He still has to wire the shunting

Station already in place…

He’s talked about this a very long time–

To do it would certainly save face!

BETTER OFF NOT TRYING!

BETTER OFF NOT TRYING!

 

He thought he’d try to research

His favorite body types,

Perhaps provoke memories

Of several girls he likes…

But searches by computer

Kept leading him astray,

It wouldn’t cooperate

Without making him prey.

He has to trust to memory

Or pleasure at the moment,

Photos taken at his job

Risk employer foment…

He’d try to sketch but then he’d be

Focusing too much,

Upon the sights he really loves

And obsession he’d clutch.

 So better that he enjoy times

With each as they walk by,

Times like these he gets worked up

So much that he may cry…

Lust and love are very close

And he must watch apace,

Keeping his mouth shut while nearby

In order to save face.
