This was written by a young lady whose father works for Massey Coal:
Ode to a Massey Miner
In light of all that has happened, I can stand with pride and say;
I am a Massey miner, working hard to mine coal the right way.
We wake at the crack of dawn, and go to work each and every day;
And crawl under miles of rock and roof to preserve the American way.
What we do underground here in the the coalfields, benefits the entire US of A;
The work of the Massey miner, makes your life much easier in a million different ways.
Our work keeps your house much cooler, on the hottest of summer days;
And what we do keeps your lights on, no matter where you live or stay
Our jobs are very important, no matter what anyone may think or say;
They keep everyone living their lives, in the most comfortable of ways.
In spite of all that has happened, you should all think of it this way;
Without us Massey miners, your life would be much darker in many ways.
So remember the Massey miners, be they young or be they old;
They risk their lives each day, so you’re never forced to brave the cold.
Now next time you want to bash our miners, or have negative things to say,
Try sitting in the dark and cold and I’m sure you’ll start to see it the “Coal Miner’s” way.
