Clove Hitch

I've been a speck in the jetsam
Of a long decent
I was a spot in some flotsam
I could not prevent

Now I'm a locustwood post
On a hundred foot rope
Behind a caboose
For the bounce

Another Hitch
Would you believe I wrote this in the sixties? No?

But, there are still some cabooses in use, if only on the old lines renovated for fun passenger tours.

Yes; from one ride to another is the way it seems, at times; with limited control. Even the person running a train is never fully in control.

This poem has been this length from the start, though I did try some other words.

Thank you for the visit and comments, Ms. Lucie.

Of comets and cabooses

I believe!
That it's from the sixties - because - your language is free from the email-, web forum-influenced simplified, non-emotional, jaded and flip words and images.

It's yummy - I weally weally wuv it.
