Vachel Lindsay - Factory Windows are Always Broken

FACTORY windows are always broken. 
Somebody's always throwing bricks, 
Somebody's always heaving cinders, 
Playing ugly Yahoo tricks. 

Factory windows are always broken. 
Other windows are let alone. 
No one throws through the chapel-window 
The bitter, snarling, derisive stone. 

Factory windows are always broken. 
Something or other is going wrong. 
Something is rotten--I think, in Denmark. 
End of factory-window song.

Factory Windows

This poet voices the love / hate relationship craft employees have for their work. Having a job is better than not having one. Being ordered around is not welcomed however.Maybe throwing a brick through the window on the way home from the Pub some night will even the score. They will not know who did it, so there will be no punishment. Sweet revenge.
