    • POEM: A Teamster's Farewell by Carl Sandburg (2/14/2010 2:33:00 PM)

      This anti-worker poem annoys me. The author is making a political statement and I do not think it is a progressive one. It is damning the Unionist movement when it says its leader is being carted off to jail. I can think of lots of examples of early American Bosses who did hellish things to their employees. They deserved jail, but they handled the purse strings and never saw jail. Wouldn't it be fairer to examine both sides? Sure would, but this is agit-prop poetry, and wasn't really examined for anything like truth, fairness and a discussion.
      One small point: I wonder if the horses mentioned date this poem to the days of Jimmy Hoffa. I think cops began using automotive means earlier than Jimmy.
