Poetry Corner: God Bless The Working Stiff

By Richard Wallace

There is a group of men and women

who work hard every day;

on farms, in stores and lumber yards,

they work hard for their pay.


They mow your lawns and pick your apples,

do your roofing in the heat,

while others paint your houses

and still more pave your street.


Cement men pour your basements,

mechanics fix your cars,

while others make their living

in pizza joints and bars.


These folks are all around us

I’m suggesting to you, this,

we need these folks around us,

God bless the working stiff.
