PEONS
(2/7/07)


pile it on
chore after chore
we will laugh
out loud
and still ask
for more

we like it
quick
and crazy

we can handle
anything that you've got
so throw it at us
on us
over us
you will not
stop us
from finishing
our daily
drudgery

we exist
in a hectic haze
where all is
blurred light
and activity
but still we focus
upon the clarity
of the simple task
ahead of us

we know
what's right
we dig in
and do it
not looking
to either side
just straight ahead
and through it

we keep
on pushing
long after
you are gone
doing the job
until there is
nothing left
to be done

we earn
liberation
through work
and will not accept
your grand ideas
of exploitation

your
nemesis
sets us
free
