There’s a train now from London to Paris
It takes about three hours
Someone told me the train goes over 200
Miles-per-hour. While you’re riding
You cannot tell. We seem to be going
At a normal pace.
When another train passes,
Going the opposite direction
There is a jolt. For a moment
I fear we are thrown off our track.
We are only in passing for less than
One second, but at that time
I can tell we are traveling very fast.
