The old labourer bloodied hands tussle black rock

Labourer of the mines -(2)Tanka- 1.Old labourer 2.Minor minor

The old labourer

The old labourer bloodied hands tussle black rock

The old labourer bloodied hands tussle black rock No daylight be seen

The old labourer bloodied hands tussle black rock No daylight be seen Even darkness in their dreams

The old labourer bloodied hands tussle black rock No daylight be seen Even darkness in their dreams Mines have darkness as the theme

Writers note: Interesting and infuriating fact about mines in the olden days sometimes they would work them through the night and tell them and pay them for only one day. They were exhausted and had no concept of time anymore and the rich took advantage of this notion. Imagine working and living in darkness.

Tanka 2 the minor

Minor minors mine

Minor minors mine Too fresh faced and young to die

Minor minors mine Too fresh faced and young to die they were in the pit

Minor minors mine Too fresh faced and young to die they were in the pit candle flickering ney lit

Minor minors mine Too fresh faced and young to die they were in the pit candle flickering ney lit The kids had to have their wits

Writers note:During the industrial revolution in Britain their was a prolonged period of almost slavery in the mines. Even children were forced out of necessity to go deep into the darkness to tussle the black rock. Incidentally this is why british people sometimes refer to childeren as minors as a remembrance for that sadness
