‘Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the mine
The miners were a-diggin,
And working their find.

Blast holes were placed along the vein with care,
In hopes that high-grade soon would be found there;
The miners are working all through the season,
Visions of nuggets obscuring their reason.

And the super in his hard hat, and I with a light,
Had just finished a map which we knew must be right,
When outside the tunnel there arose such a clatter,
That we tripped over each other to see what was the matter.
Into the overhead beam I did my head crash,
Causing thousands of tiny stars to begin to flash.

The lamp on my head did give to my gaze
The appearance that things were all in a haze,
When, what to my uncertain eyes did appear,
But a miniature loader with the name of “John Deere”,
With a load full mineral so shiny and bright,
That I knew in a moment it was St. Niccolite.

The ore minerals he had were all of such fame
That he pointed to each and called it by name:
“Here’s chalcocite, and pyrite, and skarns with amphibole,
There’s moly, there’s silver, even small bits of gold!
To the loading bin, where to the mill you will falll
Now grind away, grind away, grind away all!”

As diesels that must up a long, steep hill press,
When downshifted tend to belch up a mess.
So on came the loader, which I could tell wasn’t new,
With a bucket of ore, and St. Niccolite too.

And then with a rumbling, it came to a stop
And out fell the driver, a-landing on his top
As he rubbed his head and sheepishly looked around
He exclaimed, “Ya, dat vas supposed to be vit a bound.”
(Quite the accent, I knew he was foreign- not from this region,
and with that great intellect, figured probably Norwegian).

He was dressed all in rubber, from his head to his toes,
And his odor was offensive, an affront to the nose;
A battered old hard hat he kept on his head,
With a light on the top that blinked green and red.
His eyes were like slits, his mouth like a snake,
His nose, he should blow it, his clothes were all caked;
His beady eyes kept darting all about the room,
Making me wish he would leave, now is not too soon.

The stump of cigar, it looked mighty fine,
And the smoke circled his head like a mighty dollar sign,
He had a broad face and a round little belly
That might have been funny if he wasn’t so smelly.

A wink of his eye and nod of head,
Soon gave me to know that I had everything to dread.
I winced as I saw him pull the shares from his folder,
And thought, “Oh no, not another mine stock promoter!”

He spoke “My Newmont and Barrick shares I have sold”,
And left me worthless stock in a mine with but coal.
Then starting his machine with a great noise and flair,
He drove up the tunnel as though without care.

He drove up the incline with a cough and a sputter,
As he vanished in the dark, he stopped as to utter,
With a smile on his face and a bit of bravado,
“But I do have some shares in a little mine in Nevada.”

Somehow I had forgotten to mention the shaft,
Ere he drove out of sight along that dark path,
As he disappeared with a yell and a bright flash,
I said to myself, “At least I got the last laugh”

HO! HO! HO!
