Coal

The word came around noon that day,

With the sirens singing highly.

She got up and ran,

As fast as she could.

Tense feelings opening in her chest.

Her Daddy was down in those mines,

In those pits.

She came to a stop.

Men stood with there families,

Holding there wives and children.

Telling them he was ok.

One looked up,

Sadness filled his eyes.

He wasn’t coming back.

The End
