In the darkness of the mines of west virginia
The men spent their last hours in the cold dark of the mines, without their families beside them.
And, for what? Whose lives did they enrich by their daily sacrifices, by their final sacrifice?
For generations the poor residents of West Virginia have been exploited by monied interests.
The mainstream media crowds around the drama and the tragedy, like vultures they descend.
But, where were they when these men were alive, struggling to make a living?
If not they, then who will ask the questions that need answering?
How much MONEY does it take to buy safety?
How much MONEY is a miner's life worth?
How much MONEY is a banker's?
Where were bankers when MONEY for miner safety was needed?
When will we learn that WE THE PEOPLE are more valuable than their cheap, filthy debased dollars?
When will the death and destruction on behalf of this pyramid stop?
When is enough, ENOUGH?
When will we take our country back?
