QotD: Thus your fathers were made (Matthew 20:7)

Вроде как три года назад должен был выписать, а что-то не.

From farther away, they are answered by voices of the UNEMPLOYED.

No man has hired us
With pocketed hands
And lowered faces.
We stand about in open places
And shiver in unlit rooms.
Only the wind moves
Our empty fields, untilled,
Where the plow rests at an angle
To the furrow. In this land
There will be one cigarette to two men,
To two women one half pint of bitter
Ale. In this land
No man has hired us. 
Our life is unwelcome, our death
Unmentioned in ‘The Times’.
