To my utter delectation
As I stood there on the station
I was lost in admiration
                        of  a god

Such eternal fascination
Of the masses on that station
Singing out in acclamation
                        of a god

There’s no finer transportation
Built in this or other nation
That’s my firm determination
                        of this god

You could try investigation
Or resort to divination
But you’ll find in culmination
                        Just this god

Though it’s called infatuation
May not pass true validation
I say there’s no vacillation
                        that’s a god

Though a modern usurpation
Has sidelined vapourisation
Any honest valuation
                        rates that god

Now there’s reinvigouration
For disciples on vacation
To a sacred reservation
                        of this god

Though now steam’s ornamentation
We’ll enjoy it’s operation
And its perfect orchestration
                        Steam is god!
