POEM FOR LABOUR DAY

 

IT TAKES A LABOURER

 

By Joe Ching’ani-Malawi

 

 

All the garbage in the streets and homesteads

It takes a labourer to clear them

The foundations of single and multistory buildings

It takes a labourer to dig them

Even the feeder roads nicely rehabilitated and reshaped

It takes a labourer to make them

What about Africa’s green gold-Tobacco

It takes an ordinary labourer to toil throughout the processes

On the scattered Mines all over the world

It will take a labourer to bring forth any production-and profits too

Waking up every morning, walking to work

Barefoot, in the cold or scorching sun

And sometimes with nothing to eat at lunch break

It takes a labourer to do our cheap yet energy demanding chores

But even if their wages are not accorded a blink,

One fact is sure:

 

Should an election result run neck and neck,

 

It will take a labourer

TO TIP THE SCALES!!!
