 ramblings and things

Prologue To Alternative Earth

Imagine a world that
Could have been
A little more rural
Of forest and green
Steam is the power
Coal is still king
And they rely a lot
On the clockwork spring.

A much slower world
As Shires pull loads
Along its network of
Near empty  roads.
Canals are  still busy
Towpaths are still clear
Though it's more likely
Steam barges will  appear..

Eyes closed to imagine
Let your brain give birth
To that  concept of
My alternative Earth.
 If you are now ready
To accept that  scene
Then I'll tell you my stories
Of what might have been.
