The Saga of the Garment Workers

Workers safety and  workers security,

Had never been the priority,

Working relentlessly under the threat of deadly hazards,

Workers’ rights and  aspirations are never answered.

Often victims of  factory building collapse or fire

Thousands find their final destinations at grave or pyre

Still the owners hearts remain unchanged

And they are ever unrepentant

Their overseas market remains steady and strong

As long they can sell the cheapest  clothes nothing wrong

Workers come and workers go

Their wages remain always low.

This is the saga of the Bangladesh Garment

Their sweat and blood remain always dormant.
