"Beauty of Steam"

‘Beauty of Steam’

Electro-motive was the dream
Giant Oil and Motor scheme
Quiet progress steady sure
Politicians did procure.

Steam locomotive dinosaur
Fossil fuels consumed galore
Diesel powered did replace
Until automobiles entered race.

‘King Coal’ defeated long ago
Electro-motive same fate bestow
Giant Oil and Motor dream
Such Kingdom now is seen….

Reality of that seen today
Is tommorow’s yesterday
Awesome to see driving wheel
Powered by steam on steel!

Allure of such power expose
Skill of pride craftsmen those
Toiled there for heart and soul
Glad I do not have to shovel coal!
