As a country we mourn...

The church bell rang 29 times so we knew it was final and the end of the line. Now 29 miners are at heavens gate, with coal silt dirty faces asking is it too late? When god replies with half a grin, no my children come on in. They placed their mining lights gently on heavens floor when god said "job well done, leave your boots at the door."
