Steel Line poem - 2


We in that factory
we were getting tired of the wrong expression
we were thinking if the moon is the same
and the heat of the sun is still on
why are only the bosses and their servants
laughing and singing their songs.
We, like any man in the world
We have to fight back.

— Ivor Rodriguez
