When Workers Decide Union

Because 28% more 

is the child’s calm cheek cupped 

in your providing palm

Because house, home

roots digging into nourishing soil 

nourishing air in return

Because when unchecked power 

of employer becomes

sublimely, humanly checked

the food full on your family’s plate

tastes every day like sunrise

Because 31% more, 55% more

because 26% more, because

worry not vibrating your floors

threatening quake

Because their nuclear greed attempts

mushroom clouds everywhere

Because

our sky, our children, our lives
