Workers Unite

The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library
If they wish to strike,
They will face their plight:
Workers fired
Until starvation admired;

Ration cards ceased
Until everyone pleads,
          “The regime's way is right
                    — It's our only light.”

A contract will be signed
With all who are aligned:
A half-pound of bread
And a job in which you dread.

Working for the regime
Will be considered pristine.
But if you decide to breach,
Your execution will be reached.
