Boss’ Mules

Coca Cola Plant Marion, SC USA

Company doors open charge like herds, trained

Move in orderly lines one by one,

No pushing,  jumping, time clock

Never moves stays in front

Punch in, hurry, we’ll all be late

3rd shift workers, two legged boss

Make sure we don’t stray

Pressing buttons on machines, hooves gloved

for safety, hot in all this gear, machine heats

Quickly, heat piercing

Coca Cola Plant Marion, SC USA

Look left, right, fellow cattle robots

Doing same daily job

Horn sounds two legged boss,

Fancy suite, strolling proudly down the aisle

“Lunch,” he bellows, “All come now!”

Steady pace break room ahead stretching our

Hooves, shaking our heads, machines positioned

Wrong we have pains in our necks

Stools lined, little space troughs

Laid with hot dogs, hamburgers, and cake

“Celebrate, cried two legged boss, “Production

Made, all laid off with no pay!”

Coca Cola Plant Marion, SC USA
