A Dollar A Day


The employers should pay their workers for their work a fair pay
But for millions of workers around the World it is not this way
And thousands of millions are paid as little as a dollar a day
And for billions that life is tougher than tough does seem sad to say
A dollar a day does seem little to you or to me
So many have to work hard for to live in poverty
Yet of exorbitant salaries we do read of and hear
C E O's of big companies are paid millions a year
The gap between the haves and the have nots is widening by the day
And that the poor are getting poorer does seem sad to say
In a World where many of the wealthy know how to take but not how to give
For billions it is a hard struggle just for to live
That the poor are getting poorer it does seem sad to say
And far too many work hard for just a dollar a day.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
