“On the Stub” by Tony Kraut
Push, pull, turn and twist; any job, I’ll do my best.
I wear the scars of past jobs done; with my teeth as sharp as the face they’re on.
A bar commands my every move; whether my encounter is hard or smooth.
The job I do is always as told; by the driller’s hand on the lever he holds.
Unknown challenges I look to defeat; with my flights all hard and neat.
Into the unknown depths I go; retrieving spoils for crew to show.
Trading stub with barrel and bucket; as soils change from core to muck-it.
Up and down we each do go; riding the kelly like a steel yo-yo.
Now loaded on truck for ride back home; re-tuned and placed in the yard, not alone.
In this place we all rest and rust; until again on the stub, our backs we’ll bust.
