Steel Reality

Labor is the pivot about which the world turns
In war workers are on both ends of the bayonet and rifle
In peace workers make what people consume, and the wealthy own
The labor is what the individual worker controls
The wealthy would not trifle with the definitions of the value of labor
If they were not aware that the power of the working man exists
Regardless of the rich men and women
Far more peanuts and beer are consumed
Than champagne and caviar
Capital is what we are told is the creator of jobs
But the creator of jobs is need
Not some idle handed greed
Let us celebrate those who produce
Instead of uplifting those
Who live at the top
