Golden Oldie
First published tftd 11/04/88

It's not my place
To run the train
The whistle I can't blow
It's not my place
To say how far
The train's allowed to go

It's not my place
To shoot off steam
Nor even clang the bell
But let the train once
Jump the track....
Then see who catches hell.

-On the wall of the Stationmaster's Office,
Grand Central Terminal

(Also seen in Korea circa 1965 at
an especially appropriate moment.)

Nothing sucks more than that moment
during an argument when you realize
you're wrong.
