That strike, not to like
stayed in Davey’s mind,
and despite the pay hike
he just thought it unkind
to both the white hats
and the workers so grimy
but well, sadly that’s
a justified stymie.

During that time, nothing got produced, Davey deduced. What’s more, a whopping utility bill and no doubt some loans needed to be paid for all that machinery sitting idle.
And what had actually been accomplished?
Twenty cents an hour? Thirty?
Memory doesn’t serve on that one.

But for Davey – ever the restless striver who needed to MOVE – that strike was a waste of time.
