Whoa! Did you see that, Clancy? Looked like Pope Benedict on that train that just went by!

Nah, it couldn’t have been, Lamar.That’s an express and the Pope takes the local.

Couldn’t he take the express and change to the local at 72nd Street?

Yeah, I guess that would work. Maybe he’s running late this morning, or he’s got a sales call before he hits the office.

I seen him once on the F Train. Real friendly guy.

No way! He say anything to you?

Yes, he said:

This train don’t carry no smokers, this train,
This train don’t carry no smokers, this train,
This train don’t carry no smokers, two-bit liars, small time jokers,
This train don’t carry no smokers, this train…

A loco motive for doing this?

Hey Doctor, it’s me! Earl! I’m calling from out here on the railway line where you sent me. Are you positive this will make me better?

Yes Earl, we’re on the right track.

You say the electrical energy from the rails will cure me, but how do I get it from the train into me?
