The Workers - Poem by Francis Duggan

They worked so hard for their every take home pay
But sadly they are not remembered today
For helping to give us our present prosperity
Yet their achievements has not earned them a chapter in the book of human history

They are not seen as worthy of any claim to renown
The working people the backbone of every city and town
Sadly their fans in numbers are becoming more rare
Yet without them there would not be any millionaire

On the working women and men of Countries Worldwide
We ought to look up to with a sense of pride
The true quiet achievers of them one can say
Yet they are the overlooked of the Human World of today

The workers their achievements one cannot say are small
But you will not see their names on a memorial wall
And so few to be like them to does aspire
Though they are the people we ought to admire.
