The Hole

I wake before the birds tweet,

put broken boots on blistered feet,

a cup of stew is a small treat

then into snarling wind and sleet.

See, I don’t earn my brass in a white collar shirt,

I spend my days knee deep in dirt,

today, someone will get hurt,

that, for sure, is dead cert.

Another, death, another lost soul

but it’s this – or the dole,

so I dig, I dig for coal,

this life wasted in a hole.
