Have you ever played, ‘Train Grand Prix’?
I’ll tell you how it’s done – you see…
the morning commute becomes fast and fun,
the connection being, Formula One.
Alight the train – the game does start,
from A to B, before depart.
See your quarry, each the best,
overtake them on your quest.
…and on the inside Ayrton Senna,
lady redcoat, hair of henna,
overtaking Jenson Button,
Miss prim and proper, lamb as mutton.
Outside geezer, old and grey,
Lewis H has had his day!
Student alert, mean and clued,
move over Hunt don’t be rude.
Sebastian Vettel is in my way,
deftly dodged with no delay,
Stirling Moss with the wheelie case,
watch out fool, I’ll win this race!
In pole position, take the lead,
aboard the train at high speed,
connection caught and what a blast,
Train Grand Prix – do not be last!
