Blue collar zombies

by Richard j. Balajadia


They eat, wander and breed

They are everywhere!

Their only goal is to feed


Zombies of the blue collar

Masses of the mindless Machine!

Work late for low dollar

In factories everywhere!


Such potential wasted!

Benefits and bonuses,

These luxuries never tasted

They are slaves!


Cars, appliances and toys!

In lines they assemble,

These men, women, and boys!

Hopeless future!


Making Hanes, making Fords, making soap!

All these jobs offer are:

High taxes, low salary, no hope!

Labor Exploited!


Finish school and avoid their shame!

Their misfortunes are many

But only themselves they blame

Strive for success!
