Sanitation man of such great worth,
Keeping clean her yards of Mother Earth,
From your battling through the wind and rain,
Beauty abounds o’er hill and plain.
Surgeons and scientists and statesmen too,
Soldiers and bankers and musicians endued,
Everyone is special for the earth to prosper,
In keeping with labor as fortune’s messenger.
Prominence is measured by attitude aloud.
The job well done makes everyone proud.
Monarchs and paupers live on the same earth,
All with the will to substantiate their worth.
Praise be to those who do the best they can,
And to be depended upon since time began.

Hi Nelson. I wrote this for "The Belt and Beyond" the local magazine that publishes my poetry, for Labor Day. Everybody is just as important as everybody else regardless of who he is.

The love for life and the love for Mother Earth two more kinds of love that make a new day a sweet time to savor, a good time for man of worth indeed.

Thanks Robert. Like
