They Will Say by Carl Sandburg

They Will Say
Carl Sandburg

Of my city the worst that men will ever say is this: You took little children away from the sun and the dew, And the glimmers that played in the grass under the great sky, And the reckless rain;

You put them between walls To work, broken and smothered, For bread and wages,to eat dust in their throats and die empty-hearted for a little handful of pay on a few Saturday nights.
