Blue Blood

The last factory around.

The last factory in town,

but Emily still worked there.

It was a source of shame

for her family,

Came from old money.

And it was beneath her station.

Contrary, she took pride in her work.

Making piano keys

brokered on the backs of owned men

limping through the Congo.
