Miners stayed behind as a vague photo on the wall

“Black as coal they fell to their knees
For no one could hear their pleas
They wheezed and wheezed until no more
For the air they breathed was poor.”

(M. Moise in Ode to the miners)
Genk (B)

The door has remained open, the miners never come back

"And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted -- "Open then the Door!
"You know how little while we have to stay,
"And, once departed, may return no more.""

(Based on a Persian text by Hakim Omar Khayyám)

An open storage

“Funny, how the things you have the hardest time parting with
Are the things you need the least”

Dark clouds over our industrial landscape

"Wakonda Wakonda!
Deep rolls thy thunder!
Wakonda!
They speak to me, my friend;
The Weeping Ones,
Hark! In deep rolling thunder calling.
Wakonda!
O friend, they speak to me.
Far above, hark,
Deep voiced in thunder calling."

(A. Farwell in Inketunga's thunder song)
