Child Labor

By Charlotte Perkins Gilman

(America’s most brilliant woman poet and critic; born 1860)
NO fledgling feeds the father bird!
  No chicken feeds the hen!
No kitten mouses for the cat—
  This glory is for men:
We are the Wisest, Strongest Race—        5
  Loud may our praise be sung!
The only animal alive
  That lives upon its young!
