Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
I. Smoke Nights
2. Five Towns on the B. & O.
  
BY day … tireless smokestacks … hungry smoky shanties hanging to the slopes … crooning: We get by, that’s all.
By night … all lit up … fire-gold bars, fire-gold flues … and the shanties shaking in clumsy shadows … almost the hills shaking … all crooning: By God, we’re going to find out or know why.
