All Lost In The Breach

Red spread the river
as they tunneled and

driving deeper and deeper
to ores reserved

the protests to silence
were groomed and cottoned

with heavy scraping hands
dropping through the bottom

and away down the breach
went the bore and the lake

all that remains
a little tugboat
left looking for its wake.

One of my favorite stories when I was young, was about a little tugboat that found just how strong she really was towing in Giant Grey Steel ships.
