California’s Summers

Here is another poem that was inspired many years ago by the work my family and I did. It’s called “California Summers”

California’s summers

Summer is here and fruit has ripened

Covered trees with sugar toppings

In Califas richest valley

 

Ranchers seek for desperate migrant

Workers seeking easy money

Moving ladders, dragging sacks of

Peaches or buckets full of cherries

 

These illegal migrant workers

Stay all day below the scorching

Sun and can’t complain about their

Wage that’s short of equal pay
