Coal And Diamonds

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

Coal came from

a truck before converstion

to gas or oil. Down the chute

to the basement fresh and shiny.

Today's kids do not remember

coal chutes or coal stoves.

.

Plucked or chipped or loaded

up by hand or a coal shovel,

another piece of technology

kids today probably could not

name.

.

Coal, picked by miners are

like black fruit. A high carbon

signature hopefully will be

replaced means by wind

and solar because gas and oil

are running out.

Diamond

So hard a substance they put them on the tips of drill bits. Pearl diving, not that's a sport :)

Not Us

If I did not get my doll there would be trouble at the North Pole. I was good way back when and I am ever so good now too. :)
