Train! By L. Don Oliver

We all called him train, No purer person you will _; Every morning we would gather, To watch Train chugging down the _;

Each morning we would pump our fists, Like little children are want to ; He would pull his imaginary whistle, Then go, whoo-whoo, whoo-whoo, whoo-__;

Train was a slow learner, And he wasn't too __, One thing he did possess, Was a big loving __;

The little money he made, From cleaning horse stalls, To him wasn't a great _; Each morning he would buy bread, For all the little birds, And the small animals to ;

One day a small child, Fell into a raging river, Running thorough a biting rain, That cut like a sharpened __, With no thought of himself, Train leaped into that river, Swam to that little child, And save that baby's _;

Train he was still mortal, He had every thing to live for, And he didn't want to ; The last time he was seen, He was flowing down the river, His hand up, waving __;

They found Train a few days later, There was nothing any one could ; Some say that off in the distance, They heard Train going whoo-whoo, whoo-__;

I know that Train is with, God in heaven and that, He is doing just _; For each morning the angels, All gather to watch Train, Go chugging down the _;

Inequality! By L. Don Oliver

Oh! impoverished child, Where goes thou? Did thou want? Did thou need? I fear thou did;

Oh! prosperous child, Where goes thou? Thou did not want, Thou did not need, Heredity made it so;

Oh! neglected woman, Where goes thou? Did thou eat? Did thou drink? I fear thou did not;

Oh! egotistical man, Where goes thou? Thou did eat, Thou did drink, Thou caused it to be!
