Working Poor


Excerpt from Measuring For Balance by Author Demitri Tyler

Working Poor

We are the working poor
the grease in your machine

The steam

The apple pie sky chasers
the no health care

365 without a sick call faithful
the heavy lifting no pension people
the phantom to your opera singers

The no union teamsters
the American dream dreamers

We are the working poor
the undisputed overtime champs
the over taxed and under paid

Check to check tramps

The quality time have- not’s
the shop boxed

The sweaters

The boots until
the straps pop

Your clock punched punchers
your home cooked meal
