Poem : Unskilled Workers..

May 31, 2016


Unskilled Workers

Unskilled workers may not have learnt much

They work a lot their job is such

It’s not right for us to pull them down

While we stay prissy and wear a crown

They are humans just like us

Then why do we make so much fuss

To talk to them or respect them

Our waste they clean, wait for one to employ them

Work to earn bread and support their family with a sum

That may not be enough!

Still they are considered as lower than others

Have no support from their earthly brothers

They don’t have many benefits

Have to work against prejudice

Yet they wear a smile every day

And finish their work in their own little way

Let’s show them mercy and love

Make them believe there’s a God above

Hand in hand we’ll change this world

Let what we can do be unfurled...
