Villanelle: Forty Hours

I did not like the things they had to say.
The current economic crisis meant
That I should have to work on Saturday.

Why must I have to work the extra day?
I cannot get it back once it is spent.
I did not like the things they had to say

I want to sit and watch my children play,
Ignore the note the supervisor sent.
That I should have to work on Saturday.

What might they do if I do not obey?
How will I buy our food or pay the rent?
I did not like the things they had to say.

Our bosses think the workers easy prey.
Making more profit is their sole intent,
That I should have to work on Saturday.

We will not let them take our rights away!
The unions will our interests represent.
I did not like the things they had to say.
That I should have to work on Saturday.
