Always With Us Valentine

By whose authority
Is the shadow cast
But by the light itself
Working on us long hours
As any laborer must
The stern faces of the poor
The fleshy faces of the rich
We must think our way
Out of this
Hoeing the long rows of slavery
That look like lettuce or strawberries
Or piles of money
But by whose authority
Who says it’s so
