Praise song for the day

The meaning of the ode and lyric poem is about how a lot of slaves, and hardworking women have sacrificed a lot to make the inauguration great, picked the cotton and the lettuce, “built brick by brick the glittering edifices they would then keep clean and work inside of.” (Lines 28-29). The slaves and women have suffered and have struggled to find ways to accomplish the inauguration, but they never gave up, “all about us is noise. All about us is noise and bramble, thorn and din, eachone of our ancestors on our tongues.” (Lines 4-6).
