Out Of The Mine


Miraculous feat

all out of the ground,

miraculous feat,

now safe and sound.





Who’ll it be,

who’ll be top-side

when out’a the slag?

Johnny, Johnny,

cat’s out’a the bag.


Not a smart request

for  the world to see,

wife or mistress

who’ll it be?


Day sixty-nine

beneath the ground

buried sixty-nine days

in the San Jose Mine.


Johnny, Johnny,

were you in mental distress,

requesting a greeting

from  both wife and mistress.



“I’ll not be there!”

Johnnies misses said.

“If she’s there

It’ll not be me!

I won’t be there

for the  world to see!”


Out of the mine now,

Who’ll it be?


Kissing the mistress

for the world to see.

Johnny, Johnny

in so much trouble

you’ll be!

Glad they are safe and sound ... but agree, some things should be left in private. Well done.

(((HUGS)))) and love, Karla.

I am so glad they all are safe and that is the important thing, BUT, I feel that that man should not have done what he did so all the world could see. Somethings should be private I feel.Really liked your work here Markie
