May Day - Poem by Francis Duggan

May Day is the day when workers of all Nations their marvellous heritage celebrate
The men and women who through their honest endeavours have played their part in the building of their State
Many of them work hard for low wages and for them never an easy pay
Unfurl the red flag of the workers why not celebrate them today.

We live in a capitalist society where some take far more than their share
Where many poor souls must grow poorer for the making of one new millionaire
A self made millionaire does not exist anyone never makes it on their own
Out of the sweat of the hard working workers some into wealthy people have grown.

'Tis May Day the workers are marching in New York and Moscow's Red Square
In Britain and Cities through Europe the workers parade everywhere
All through Asia and Australia and New Zealand in every big City and Town
The workers today celebrating parading the streets up and down.

In big Cities in Canada and South America as well as Mexico and the U S of A
The workers they are celebtating and toasting the birthday of May
The men and women who build every Nation the back bone of the World one might say
Where would we be without the workers three cheers for the workers today.
