Inspired by Picture on the wall at Dad’s Diner

By David Smith February 1, 2010

Dad’s Diner on a cold day it ‘twas;

In for the warmth, creating quite a buzz;

The lineman up the pole fascinates me

Not being able to climb, my liability.

A soldier in the army, on a lineman course he went.

Terrified of heights; as his time was fearfully spent.

Returned back to unit because he could not function in the air;

To have empathy for him; circumstances can compare.

And being up a pole to work like on the ground;

Looking at creation with life so profound.

Planted to the ground and a camera in the air;

Adapt to being grounded; my life I want to share.
