What’s with this mining camp?

To the editor:

What was this mining camp? How deep in our world did men tramp?

Shafts 9000′ deep for copper ore to meet this stamp!

Wash away the sands, leave metals to pay millions for man in askance?!

How much have we stood from this happenstance?

To live in a mining camp,

Oh the romance!!

Our metal “copper” we

need to survive to be able to prance!
