Miners (Poem)

 

 

 

The pits have all gone

 

We know what went wrong

 

The imports have sealed their fate.

 

Brother to brother

 

Down mine shaft and other

 

Now they've closed the last gate.

 

 

 

Who left us yearning?

 

She's not for turning

 

Thatcher has took it all down.

 

We're all left to rave

 

The good and the brave

 

All wear a funeral gown.

 

 

 

The black gold's still there

 

Will nobody care

 

What rights does the working man say?

 

We're all a lot older

 

Still look over your shoulder

 

Those that took it away.

 

 

 

What was it they did

 

No government bid

 

To save the mines from their close.

 

It's all too easy

 

When the governments squeezy

 

Sure don't smell like a rose.

 

 

 

Hard working man

 

Done the best that he can

 

Toil for an honest days pay.

 

Up to the sky

 

Head home now to cry

 

No laughter like back in the day.

 

 

 

The black gold's still there

 

Will nobody care

 

What rights does the working man say?

 

We're all a lot older

 

Still look over your shoulder

 

Those that took it away.
