While working 1600 feet’ down at an underground site
Where samples I collected, while using my miners light
Suddenly, I heard a slight distant rumbling sound
And, I felt a slight tremble as I sat on the ground
This is not good, I thought, I better not take any chances
Shutting off the equipment, clipped on my belt and my pants
Quickly grabbing my writing board, I hurried from this site
Where the walls were already packed with dynamite
I always remembered to hang up my Safety Tag
A safety precaution to keep myself, out of a body bag
I hurried very quickly to the nearest work ladder leading down
Where 30 feet below was a much safer ground
Who was igniting these charges, I did not know
The dirt walls all pre-wired and ready to blow
Very quickly, I descended the ladder 20 feet below
When thunderous booms, I heard the dynamite blow
A few seconds later, a very strong wind blew pass
I was torn from the ladder, by the force of the blast
I lay curled up at the bottom, on the dirt rocky ground
As the dirt, dust and smoke continued coming down
Covered head to toe with dirt, I could not see
As an intense wave of fear suddenly came over me
Slowly moving my body as I began to crawl
Sitting gently against the cold dirt walls
My head resting on my arms, tears filled my eyes
I was in pain from the fall, but I was still alive
Wiping dust off my face and drying my eyes
While gathering my thoughts, another very close demise
It was pitch black except for my dim lamplight, I could see
Slowly pulling on the cord bringing it closer to me
The 4th time, death has come close, so very near
As I wonder why I continue working down here
