Let There Be a Right to Earn a Living
|Music: Fugue in C Major.
By Dietrich Buxtehude. Sequenced by David Cooke.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Let there be a right to earn a living!
All who wish to work should have the chance.
Bad times come and go with circumstance:
Ought we then be hiring or just giving?
Rest assured, there's always much to do:
Demand's determined more by funds than need.
All we give away is wealth we bleed,
Yet work for wages would that wealth renew.
