I'm Bored ~~ A ditty for "Play it Again" challenge

I'm Bored;
I want off this train

I'm bored, I want off this train
This train is going nowhere
Nowhere that I want to go
Please let me off, stop the train 
(Refrain)

The seats are dirty and old
The carpets are soiled with milk
Milk train stops at every town
Stops where I don't want to go
(Refrain)

This train is slow, slowed with age
I'm no spring chicken, I'll go
You ride this train all you want
I'm getting off the next stop
(Refrain)

Refrain:
There's a new train in our town
It takes me where lights are bright
Where I've been wanting to go
I liked you once but no more

Photo is a "Print Screen" copy of Boredom by Kenia Cris found at The Sunday Challenge ~ Featuring Kenia Cris, March 3, 2012, at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads; http://withrealtoads.blogspot.co.za/2012/03/sunday-challenge-featuring-kenia-cris.html

I'm linked today with Kerry O'Conner at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Play It Again, Toads! ; http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2016/11/play-it-again-toads.html

And again on Tuesday, I linked with Kerry O'Conner at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.  This time for the Tuesday Platform (link).  My train riding can also apply to politics, stay with the system or ride with the supposedly to be new ride.

Notes:
 (1) At "Play it Again" we are to go back to past Garden days and write for one of three suggested posts or another oldie.  I chose to write my poem, "I'm Bored", based on Kenia's art at the first link above.
 (2) Kenia Cris can be found in  various social media places, use Google to find them.  Her poetry currently is to be found here, http://anexerciseonexisting.blogspot.com/
 - Some of her photographic art can be found here, http://kenia-cris.deviantart.com/.

Add some guitar and a gentle twang and you've got yourself a nice little country song!

I enjoyed this very much, Jim, especially your use of the refrain.

You should get on top of it for a new view. Think Polar Express ...

Songs seem to lend themselves to travelling -- and a long train ride is just the place to come up with a ditty. Has me thinking about all those cross-country rides I took as a kid...Thanks for sharing.

Oh the boredom... but there are other day when we watch in wonder all the places where we will not go

I'm a spring chicken, and I'm as bored as you are. Let's hope for that new, shiny, promising train... full of adventures and exciting tomorrows.

Kind regards

A new train will certainly address all that one desires. One may not get everything but at least get some major portions which should be enough. One can't help it when an old one can prove to be unsettling!

Boredom can be a good thing...especially when it results in renewed creativity!

I want to ride the train to where the lights are bright.
