Four rails with four trains
lie centrally in the lanes,
with current for both bulb and drain
marking sites where chance means gain.
A shoe pays the hat his due,
for his stay on an orange hue
before he turns with hopes of greed
to red, to yellow, and then to green.
At first the cheapest bargain's seen,
the further along the more they mean.
We meet the tax and bribe the cop.
You can't pay? Now we stop.
