...Vermont, must be the place to be, if you want to feel whole,
in the Granitetown section is the worlds deepest hole,
it's where the quarriers cut the granite, the worlds finest, no doubt,
they simply saw away, and use water jets to cut the stuff out.
There is marble here too, but the hard stuff is better known,
owned by Rock of Ages, most cemeteries have a stone,
a lot is used for grave markers, or tombstones as a name;
but that marble and granite, in Vermont, has fame.

Middle: The D. L. Smith, Rock of Ages, deep quarry.
