your sweat that fell

your sweat that fell on the ground
became slogans
those slogans turned the world around
but you stood right there
sweating day in and day out
those marching around with flags
became millionaire
you clung to your rags
without a tomorrow or today!
old and bitter now you wonder
what were those slogans about!
