Labor Day

Before we wield the carving fork
To segregate our share of pork,
We ought to bow our heads and pray
For those without a job today.

And when the beer or wine is poured,
We ought to stop and thank the Lord
For giving us our daily work
As CEO or shipping clerk.

But after all our thanks are said,
For job and home and daily bread,
We then can rush the big buffet
And raise a toast to Labor Day.
