Take A Hike, I'm On Strike!

Wow, you humans sure like to have a lot to say. I guess I do too as I rhyme away. I mean you just make it so easy for me to do. So I have to at my zoo.

I'm on strike.
Take a hike.
See my sign?
It's so divine.

Up and down.
Cheer across town.
An angry cheer.
May bend an ear.

Bend an ear.
That would cause fear.
I want all to get bent.
Can't you see I want to make a dent?

Yep, here is my tent.
Now go, get bent.
I'm bent and bending.
I hope I'm offending.

I'm on strike.
I'll say what I like.
It is so unfair.
See my deadly stare?

Striking out.
Has some clout.
Striking in.
Isn't a win.

Reverse that?
Bah, don't be a dingbat.
It stays that way.
Striking is at play.

I want a dollar more.
Here my encore.
I want that dollar.
I'll hiss and holler.

Signs go up and down.
See my cheery frown?
Oxymoron there.
But I don't care.

Can't you hear?
I bent your ear.
I'm on strike.
Now take a hike.

Some strikes are so pointless as can be. Lose more than you gain in the end with your striking spree. Some can be handy though. But in the end all about dough. The arbitrator gets their share the longer it goes on at ones lair. Ever go on strike at your sea? Thankfully it has been avoided by me. I'm not a fan of the yelling and the round and round mass. I'll strike out on my own with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  6. Did a 4 year strike on cleaning house
    Worth it at the end
    Someone else cleaned it before it sold
    And I got the money to spend.
    (With hubby's input how we did)

  9. I once helped lead a strike against the boss
    It was awesome until we faced loss
    But it was worth the fight
    She was later fired
    Things turned out alright.

  10. I've lived in Las Vegas for years and there have been a lot of strikes here. One time there was a strike at the local Walmart neighborhood store and they pushed and screamed at anyone trying to get in the store.

  16. There's not many unions in our area, but I've come to the point that I think they're needed. Striking, though, does get nasty.

  26. Thank goodness I never had to decide whether or not to go on strike.
    But if the cause were truly important, I would have.

    I am always cognizant of and grateful to those who risked, and sometimes lost, their lives to bring about better lives for working people by striking.
    Striking is leverage that must be used judiciously, not frivolously.

    My preference as a union leader was always interest-based bargaining,
    and fortunately my district shared that preference.

    1. Good preference to have indeed
      And yeah, those that allowed it one should be grateful for at their feed
      But all the frivolous ones now
      Can surely raise an eyebrow
