THOSE WORKING GIRLS


The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,

plied their trades, and worked

their nimble fingers to the bone.


Little shops in back alleys,

wafting smells their advertisements,

long days worked to feed their families,

precarious living for all.


But that was then, and this is now.


Their jobs are now out-sourced to China,

meat shipped in from Argentina,

bread baked by multi-nationals,

all controlled by boards of directors.


A global world unimaginable,

to those working girls, of yesterday.
