#NaPoWriMo Day 13 – Underground

 
 
The digging–
 a dirty symphony
Copper music
Scraping of tools
sends shivers
down the spine
The wells, the graves,
the pipeline
All left holes in our hearts
The pumps–
 a battle of bloodline
Tin-veined
Blown gold for fools
pays pennies
on the dime
The tears, the sweat,
the pain
All left us torn apart
Time is a thin line in the sand
