SONGS OF REVOLUTIONS; BREAD AND ROSES

BREAD AND ROSES

As we go marching, marching in the beauty of the day
A million darkened kitchens, a thousand mill lots gray
Are touched with all the radiance that a sudden sun discloses!

As we go marching, we battle too for men
For they are women's children and we mother them again
(for men can never be free till our slavery is at an end)
Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes
Hearts starve as well as bodies, give us bread but give us roses

As we go marching marching, unnumbered women dead
Go crying thru our singing their ancient call for bread
Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew
Yes it is bread we fight for, but we fight for roses, too

As we go marching, marching, we bring the greater days
The rising of the women means the rising of the race
No more the drudge and idler, ten that toil where one reposes
But a sharing of life's glories - bread and roses, bread and roses!
