    The Day After

  2. At dawn we start
    since everyday is Labor Day
    in whatever field we find ourselves
    free to choose what we do
    without fetters on our ankles
    for there is a better way
    to keep us productive
    with chains that we make ourselves
    on our most earnest three pounds
    no taskmaster needed
    to oversee that we tow the line
    it is the charge we all do so well
    seven days a week
    because we always know best

    fruit pickers
    work hard all day long
    for peanuts
    little cash
    the poor ripped off by the rich
    to make big profits

    so no point
    holding up bibles
    we’ve been warned
    by scripture
    pushing camels through needles
    is not possible
