Haiku Poems about Factory Life in the Mills: Third Hour

The historians in my third hour would like to share their creations with you:

Working at the mills
dirty working conditions
humid like summer

Supporting family
woman making small profits
hopeful for success
~Mark

Poor environment
the girls are risking their lives
very low wages
~Aishwarya

The place is like winter
everybody is confined
no one can escape

Life is like summer
the air is hot and humid
the place reeks from lamps
~Vasanth

Very little pay
working conditions were poor
some girls got injured
~Luke

Very dangerous
working conditions are bad
get paid very low
~Ravi

Girls work very hard
some died or had injuries
the air was dirty

Girls were bruised and scarred
dangerous work conditions
working long hours
~Yousif

Working in the mills
hard dangerous conditions
make it out alive

Long days in the mills
twelve or fourteen hours long
girls work with caution
~Jenna

Kids are suffering
with not much pay and high rent
kids even get killed
~Matthew

Deafening noises
working hard and long hours
stuck like in winter

A new adventure
opportunities galore
spring like a new year
~Brian

Young girls working hard
steaming hot like in the summer
horrible life there

Injured everyday
strings cut me and other girls
swollen everywhere
~Hannah

Hot like the summer
hard working girls all around
get paid very low

Swollen arms and hands
yet the girls work very hard
unpleasant mill life
~Alicia

Young girls worked very hard
so sick of poor conditions
but I need money

Windows were shut tight
is it winter, spring, or fall?
Can I stop working?
~Chelsea

Sweaty girls work hard
no pretty rays coming in
no escape to go.

Too much heat inside
just like a hot summer day
machines roaring loud
~Ankita

Very long days and weeks
there were extreme conditions
working for money 

Very hot all day
summer weather in the mill
no breeze in the air
~Rachel

They live in summer
mill girls have been trapped inside
the place is musty

The place reeks of oil
machines cause mill girl deaths
but they earn money
~Preethi
