Everyday is Labor Day

Got kidnaped from my African village, tossed on a big, long ship that sailed far away Stripped of every decent human privilege, forced to work on short sleep, long hours, no pay Didn’t come to America on a pleasure cruise, land of freedom wasn’t nothing but fake news Forced to work on short sleep, long hours, no pay Looks like to me, everyday is hard Labor Day

Hi Freddie, Your title alone had my full attention. And as I began to read I was not disappointed. A piece like this needs to be in a history book because it reminds one of where they came from. It is an instant fav. Excellent job:-) Alexis
