1919, 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.
