I looked into the dark muddy waters.
just how many has it taken of sons and daughters?
Some it has taken to far off lands,
others suffered at another's hands.

A transport of goods from here to there.
Trade that wouldn't always be considered fair.
Horses and men working long n hard.
Shifting goods from ship to the yard.

heavy machinery coated in rust.

We also visited the Beetles Story, see separate page for that.
