The worst crime against working people is a company which fails to operate at a profit – Samuel Gompers

They give us a day in September
in hopes that we'll fail to remember
how much we would love to forget
the dues we must pay with our sweat,
resentment that burns like an ember

reminds us with every new statement
annoyance will feel no abatement
till granted financial respect
and then we can calmly reflect
where all of the worthless hate went.
