THE ENJOYMENT OF EMPLOYMENT!
Employers, that unselfish breed,
Existing to give all a job;
Of labour power they've no real need,
And surplus value makes them sob!
To them we're individuals,
Not merely numbers on the line;
They leave us their residuals,
For supplicating at their shrine.
No other area of life's,
Engaged in such sweet harmony;
And all of the reported strife's,
Mere playful camaraderie!
There never is a cause to strike,
Nor even less a work-to-rule;
With an incessant wages hike,
Those doing so would be a fool.
One's job is guaranteed for life,
No unemployment's ever seen;
No need for sending out the wife,
When one just hasn't got a bean.
Employers should be classed as saints,
They do it just to give us work;
They earn their profits, no complaints--
Believe that and you are a berk!
