All Aboard - Poem by Christine Anderson

Futile resistance, it's off in the distance
Prepare for a shift in existence, you're on
Are you prepared? Are you peaceful or scared?
Don't be caught unaware when the train rains in
How swift is the blink of an eye

The last great abductor, your number is up, sir
It seems the conductor has readied your seat
There's no one last drink, no time left to rethink
How swift is the blink of an eye

Can you say you have soared?
Have you cherished or whored?
have you trusted your lord?
All aboard, all aboard, all aboard...
