Temporary Workers

JIM SULLIVAN

Temporary workers, sad cases to see,
Going off to work at small hourly fee.
Not enough income nor benefits to use,
Helpful in staving off all this life's abuse.

Saving full-time wages from a worker due,
Employers bank bucks under such actions, too.
But do they still get the job done that's needed?
Or fool themselves in what today's being ceded?

To Hell they all say with temps' personal stands,
I'm the boss and I want only part-time hands.
But workers have kids who are not sometime things,
Food, clothing and shelter are more than just strings.

So employers, honorable and astute,
Hire humans full-time and then when you compute,
A better employee by far than you rent,
Is earning you profit for what you've spent.
