Lighthouse

The lighthouse has been
abandoned,
there is no one left
to man the post,
but the waves still crash
on the rocky shore,
the waves still crash
on the rocky shore.

Technology has taken the place
of humans on watch,
the lighthouse man
left no son to man the post,
but the waves still crash
on the rocky shore,
the waves still crash
on the rocky shore.

Ships safely pass the island
on stormy nights,
unaware of the dark lighthouse
where no one mans the post,
but the waves still crash
on the rocky shore,
the waves still crash
on the rocky shore.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
