The Topography Of Where I Grew Up

Leaping into unknown
Leaping into unknown

 

Coal Mining Region

It was an anthracite coal mining town

I would often walk around

And sometime it seemed to me

The ground would give out you see

A big hole would  appear

I’d just stand there and stare

And wonder about the possibility

Of falling into the hole and never be

Seen again forever and a day

It somehow never happened quite that way

I was destined to live a long and eventful life

In spite of all the worries, trials and strife.
