There is no free lunch.

The dining car is closed.

There’s a cheap freak show going on in there

and you’re not going to be invited…


Don’t try to think

about what you might be missing out on;

the things that they’re doing with all the food

and wine bottles.

Don’t let your mind drift

into the realm of lonesome “could-have-beens”;

that’s just pathetic.

You know that soon it won’t matter,

because either this thing is going

to come off the rails entirely,

or you’ll get to your stop first

and you can get off…

…the normal way.

Let those freaks have their caviar;

whatever orifice it may be served in.

It’s all going to come out the same color in the end.
