Tracks and tickets

They have run a metal rail
On a keenly graded track
Some 40 odd miles from here
To metropolis.
On this rail a train of cars does run
But in all that length, about an hour
From one end to the other,
But once does the man come
To punch the tickets of the passengers
I always wonder what one could get away with..

  1. That happened at Skytrain, too, in Vancouver, when it first opened. People were honour-bound to buy their tickets. But so many didnt, now they have to produce them, which seems a better idea, people being who they are.
