The PEACE TRAIN says that in the FIRST CARRIAGE rides FREEDOM a CONFUSED man who states that the whole of his LIFE from SCHOOL-house in CHURCH-house PUBLIC meeting to POLITICAL rally DEMONSTRATION to CONVERSATION TRAVELS to be
MISUNDERSTOOD PEOPLE not knowing WORDS anymore. In the SECOND CARRIAGE ETYMOLOGICAL man speaks out of turn sitting behind CONFUSION having picked a GOLD watch out of his pocket screaming HEAVENS TIME is out of tune as he secretes the clock back
out of sight. And a HOWLING WIND blasts GLORY riding to his home as he sees MEANING pulling down his suitcase to display his WORDS but closes his eyes to ride on to DESTINY. Will LOVE speak yet gaze from the window. No need to SPEAK WORDS may only DECEIVE.
The PEACE TRAIN shifts on with relentless unease as the GUARD who deals not in money or cards but some FOREIGN CURRENCY shouting where are you COMING to where are you GOING from. But the WORD was down on the TRACKS down on the TRACKS.
