Memory of May first

To give a correct memory to May
On my computer’s Internet I look 
Where I find stories of courageous way.

And in my mind I see remind to shook
Grave and dignified people to protest
In the painted cover of an old book.

But against them violence addressed
The legal power serving their boss
Which for law and order there messed.

When workers with police got across
Were shot abruptly with fear and dismay
Although they asked to fulfil a loss.

When was estabilshed then the labor day?
The Knights of Labor people’s work to honor
As date picked up the first day of  May.

    You need to spell "courageous" correctly. Other than that, it is very good.

    Wow a wondrful splendid poem on workers day 1st May and u captured the scenes swell. The day must evoke feelings and ideas of their status quo and so the right's battles. Thumbs up.

    Hi Mario, Although we celebrate Labor Day in September in the U.S., the scenes you described play out here as well. Nowadays, however, people seem to be having more problems with "law and order" police than they have with their employers. Hail to the working people worldwide! Enjoyed your poem, Carolyn

    I like your educational poem, it sparked a conversation between myself and my kids today about labor day.

    Mario, so true many made May Day into a day of protests and violence instead of the joy of summer arriving, they ruined the day with their chanting and fighting for labour rights, well done poem, 7, and thanks for visiting my poem, stars and scars
