Relentless (Found)

The cause for the
slight progress is
to be found
a series of fateful events
which struck like a
relentless broom
tearing down the web
of enterprise again
and again
And like industrious spiders
the promoters rebuilt their schemes
upon the same foundations.

(From Alice Whitman, “Transportation in Territorial Florida,” Florida Historical Quarterly vol. 17, no. 1 (1938): 25-26.)

Abandoned locomotive at the deserted lumber town Copeland. Donald J. Marks.
