There is always a need to modernise,
Old ways of working are superseded,
Without real change progress is impeded;
It’s in novel thinking the future lies.
Technology advances to the point
Of labour not being so laborious,
Could work even become glorious
And not something that puts life out of joint?
Who would resist choosing a better way
Once the consensus has been apprized
That benefits commonly realised
Resolve issues of poverty and pay?
But for now, workers are forced to dispute
Changes capital wants to institute.
