Labor Day Ain't Just For Play

A three-day weekend is a real nice way
To end the summer, but just as it starts
With quite a sober, thoughtful holiday,
The summer's end should mean more in our hearts
Than just an extra day to play around.
That holidays and weekends are days off
For most of us, that we are safe and sound
(Or mostly) on the job, that -- don't you scoff --
We must be fairly paid... all this and more
We owe to those who struck and fought and died
To seize back power, even up the score
E'en just a little. Here's to those who tried
And sometimes failed. There's far to go as yet,
But we can someday get there, yes, you bet!
