It Seems there is a Tug-of-War between Dream and Nightmare

It Seems there is a Tug-of-War between 
two Teams, one of Dreams and one of Nightmares.
They are my Students, I am their teacher.
They are the Beloved of my Keepers,
Gloria, Jesus, Maria and Sanjay.

They tend the Nurseries and the Gardens,
and fuel the Economy with Dollars,
their Dolor they Exchange for the Future,
and watch their Young Children opening Doors.

Oh powerful, the poor, and the needful,
the comfortable Middle Class--is it there
anymore?--Their mano de obra has built
my Classroom and Instilled my World
with Plentitude y Poesia. Thank You!
