In the poem of Carl Sandburg, he gave the reader a vivid picture of the life of the common people- the working class that in spite of their efforts for change the ruling minority is still in charge...but towards the end of his poem he made a fair warning...wait and see! when the "mob" realizes their power the ruling minority must step aside.

To me this is one of visualy imaged poem speakes about the life of people.the discrimination in them,their sacrifices towards the society and the metaphor combines to the "HUMAN FACE".Here this poem conveys us about the great work done through the people.the poet also tries to include great personalities who are role model for us
