Feed The Knockers

With our gushing blood and sweat we suffer,

Until we miners break bread and butter.

We down tools and pray for something hearty,

Casting our crusts to the Knocker party.

The souls of the departed men we feed for luck,

Who knock when the caverns are due to come unstuck,

Give thanks to them for what they knowingly instruct.
