hidden people of no name
the ones who farm the land
sew clothing of beauty
who clean when offices close
wash the dishes in restaurants
put groceries on the self
back bone of Americana
to these I say, honor is due

hidden folks of little voice
pulling our luggage station to station
poring our coffee at drive up window
the ones who teach our children
who pick up our smelly trash
back bone of Americana
to these I say, honor is due

hidden care givers of forgotten face
who work the hospital corridor
care for our spirituality and souls
save lives and protect, in our home towns
for soldiers every where round the world
back bone of Americana
to these I say, honor is due

so never hesitate to say a kind word
a nod of head or a simple thank you
for these are all Americana true
to these I say, honor is due

I bet you lead a union! could! Regardless of money, power and wealth... I see these people being disrespected often. Has anyone doing any of the degrading of these jobs EVER-EVER stopped to think that maybe they actually enjoy their jobs? AND with honor...TIP THEM WELL ... they deserve it.
