The Lineman
From Piedmont Power and Light Piedmont, Alabama

What are their thoughts, these hardy souls

tangled in knots on top of poles,

sweating it out in a blend of blue,

doing a job only few would do?

what are their thoughts, this gallant crew,

who risk their lives the long day through,

in summer heat or winter snow,

taking orders from afar and below?

what are their thoughts, these men of brawn,

who joke and swear or hum a song

who know their distance well could be

a rubber glove from eternity?

what are their thoughts at the close of the day ,

as they scramble down and put hooks away ?

do they thank GOD for the heart-- skipped beat

to feel the earth beneath their feet?

what are their thoughts as they head for home,

longing once more to greet their own?

surely they must feel some delight,

knowing they helped turn darkness into light.
