HAPPY WORKERS DAY By Luqman A. Alawode

Written by Editor

Much pain and no gain
Bamboozled is the gain of labourers
Eight hours of futility
In the jungle of obscurity

Once upon a May day
Bread and butter were a unit
Nowadays on May day
Bread divorced butter for water

Oligarchy in place of Democracy
Government of the wealthy
By the wealthy
For the wealthy

O! Lord of mercy
Very heavy is our heart
Look up to our plight
And fight us our fight
