My Favorite Train Car?

by Ken Slesarik

The railroad engine, red and bright?
Is this the one I choose tonight?
I can’t decide, oh what’s the use?
I guess I’ll pick the blue caboose?

I feel a tug within myself
then take the engine off the shelf
and put it back to call a truce
but pick again the blue caboose.

Each night I try without much gain.
I just can’t choose betwixt the twain.
I can’t decide, I’ve no excuse.
The engine or the blue caboose?
