Word Pictures Contest Entry February 2019. Lines: 17
The workin’ man,
Building this country with his hands,
Bare-chested and strong,
Like an ape
With blood and sweat,
This land he shaped.
He laid the rails,
Listen!
You can still hear the sound,
Trains coming down those tracks,
He built way back then.
Together as one,
With his fellow man,
They laid each rail.
They made more than just a way to travel,
They made this land expand,
Little did they know how far the tracks would go.
