      Summary: Pit ponies aren't the only ones forced to work in mines,
      with dead and ugly eyes
      Rating: PG-13
      Notes: Archive with my other fictions. I do love pit ponies! They
      are so cute, all little and fluffy! I hate that they were/are forced
      to die in coal mines.
      Disclaimer: Own nothing. Got it like milk?

      in the English countryside
      there is a story there, hidden in the hills
      between iridescent greens
      burning reds
      springy colors of fall
      death, pain, and coal dust
      mark the vibrant colors of the mine
      she was taken there
      once when she was young
      to see the little pit ponies
      and the lives that they had won
      the black of dust had burned their coats
      she wondered what color they were
      bright bay?
      curious dun?
      perhaps a dappled gray?
      at any rate, they worked until the day was done
      their sad little tails drooping in the wind
      but now, as she looks back
      upon that fateful trip
      she thinks with a sudden bitterness
      pit ponies aren't the only ones forced to work in mines
      with dead and ugly eyes
      coal has covered her coat as well
      she remembers not the actual color
      covered in controversy
      only that the day is done
      she can stop working for a while
