dear factory boss, by Tricia Marcella Cimera

boss, try to be less
of what you are
try to be someone who
admits wrong   cap in hand
try to call someone else
right       for a change
let one of the machines
you love so much
pound you down  into dust
like it does the rest of us
then rise
from the factory floor
to face your workers
cry for forgiveness
boss, try to be more

then       we’ll stone you
with rocks
we’ve been gathering
for years   and years
