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 the factory window song.

--Vachel Lindsay
