Magnetic South

lyrics by Jay Leo Phillips

Metal seems petrified
Down where the road's ruts hide
A story I have heard
How could the carriage ride?

A flash of panic shines
Right where the wheel aligns
Presently, liturgy
Approaching in the pines

Magnetic south ran through his heart
Magnetic fortune cast it apart

And did his hands shake in the grass?
What was the end of the story?
