Pension Of $16.23 American
Grandma Grace worked for Gorton's of Gloucester
by Bill Grace
For more years of labor than I know
Her pension check of $16.23 a month
Kept her nicely in postage stamps
For letters and even a parcel or two
Mailed from her son's home.
She was not of nor ever aspired to the managerial class
It was her son's success that protected her
Not twenty plus years of faithful service sorting fish.
