Plasterers Wear White
by Peter A. Pastore

They toil with gypsum, mortar and lime,
They arrive with heavy wooden boxes,
Trowels, hawks, hods and hoes,
Plasterers wear white,

Mix up the brown coat Ernie,
A big day of work today,
Set up the scaffolds safe and strong,
Carry the hod high and full,

Pull that screed level and smooth,
Off with the excess by sponge and water,
We'll double up today Frank,
Fast like the old days with Pa,

Keep your wrist flexible Frank,
Float that brown coat,
Sweep that darby wide,
Make it smooth,

Snap goes the trowel to the hawk,
Corners are full and ready,
Push the cornice mold Vito,
Back and forth glides the mold,

Walls, easy as some days in life,
Ceilings, cornices, tough as some days in life,
Plaster to be sure,
Plasterers wear white.
