Dream-singers, 
Story-tellers, 
Dancers, 
Loud laughers in the hands of Fate— 
           My People. 
Dish-washers, 
Elevator-boys, 
Ladies’ maids, 
Crap-shooters, 
Cooks, 
Waiters, 
Jazzers, 
Nurses of babies, 
Loaders of ships, 
Porters, 
Hairdressers, 
Comedians in vaudeville 
And band-men in circuses—
Dream-singers all, 
Story-tellers all. 
Dancers—
God! What dancers! 
Singers—
God! What singers! 
Singers and dancers, 
Dancers and laughers. 
Laughers? 
Yes, laughers….laughers…..laughers—
Loud-mouthed laughers in the hands of Fate.
