walking The Rails

There was a boy

Who walked on a railroad
Walked on the rails

Balanced his body

Laughing all over

Arms spread wide

"Son," said his father

"Walk on the ties,
You won't fall over"

The boy ignored him
Just as the father

Knew he would

They left a penny

There on the iron
Returned the next day

And found in the night
It had been flattened

Just as predicted

So he walked the rails again
