Progress - Poem by richard moore

The lighthouse looms up so tall so strong
The men who once worked there are now sadly gone
It's progress they say to replace man with machine
But when boats are in trouble who's there to be seen
Who answers their call who hears their cry
Just a tall empty lighthouse looming up to the sky

(17th August 1995, Scotland)
