Backbone of society


Salt of the earth

Worked the land

Blisters and corns on their hands

Used to a life of sweat and toil

Aching bones and tired muscles

Weary look and a grizzled demeanour

In the work ethic, they’re a believer

But never got rewarded above an average wage

So they’ve struggled for survival everyday

Living hand to mouth has always been their way

Bitter to the core and hard as nails

They’ve never achieved but they never failed

The lifestyle of a working class hero

That many others consider a zero

But they are the backbones an producers within society

There to realise the bosses and the money man’s dream.
