– laborious activity –

Bones might break

on a Saturday shift, yet

the cause is noble, right?

Bread I’ll make

while timing is swift, then

find a more solid night.

Painting walls,

washing robes,

trash collecting

to and fro…



I need to run the

coins; coins won’t run

me, with aching in my

loins, I’ll still suc-

ceed. I came to

work… work…

productive –

work… work… yet

I’ll still live.

  1. Unfortunately the system is rigged so that the working class’s production benefits an ever shrinking aristocracy or megacorps and megabanks with a capitalism that restricts the common man rather than creating opportunity.
