THE CAGE

a poem by Edwin Keith Jepson, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

The cage descended at speed,
Down and down it plunged,
Faster, ever faster,
Beneath the earth it lunged,
Not a word was spoken,
Silence filled the air,
Nerves of steel were golden,
As the miners rode down there,
The cage was always ready,
Morning, Noon and Night,
And after deploying the men,
The coal turn then took flight,
Ten thousand tons of coal,
Was hoisted up the mine,
And every working day,
The cage would be on time,
Every weekend the cage was tested,
And examined for any flaws,
And come the Monday Morning,
It was raring to beat previous scores,
And so the cage descended,
Beneath the earth it plunged,
Perhaps on it's final mission,
Before the Government lunged,
