Which year of today's review is most relevant to Tommyknockers?

2008 - Good Morning everyone!
First Post
Good job, Fat Dad

In the "Tommyknockers" peom, there's a passage that reads:

"They followed me to the abandoned mine,
I can see them now, spirits without a shine,
Itís too dark to see, too dark to walk,
I gaze at my entrance, it's been blocked"

It's a little early for obscure poetry, don'tcha think?

Fatdad...have you heard of a song called Timothy?

Trapped in a mine that had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Was Joe and me and Tim
When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Was Joe and me

Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Hungry as •••• no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll take a swig
And then there's some for you."

Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy

Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Dating myself here but, I have Timothy on vinyl.

Out here in Colorado, in Idaho Springs, there is a Micro Brewery called Tommyknockers. Because all the mines are closed here, with no more miners to haunt, I guess they put the tommyknockers to work, brewing beer!

Just like the Elves at the Ambassador?
