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.
