The Midnight Special

This is death’s train station, a kind of midnight special

the watchman stands guard so quietly awaiting his instructions

each passenger upon having gotten of the train will be

assigned a place in Hell, Purgatory, or Heaven

and each will be fully aware at all times of

where everyone else is and no one wants to trade places

new people always wonder why these tracks are so distorted

once someone has found out he must never tell anyone else
