WORKING STIFFS
(4/26/17)

they complain

they commiserate

about all
of the hours
that we spend
on the job

they seem
to think
that we're suffering
somehow

as if
we're in prison

in exile

they don't
seem to realize
that every
breathing minute
is our time

our choice

no matter
if it's
at the office

at the factory

in the fields

we are performing
with purpose

what could be
more satisfying?

they seem
to think
that we should
all be owners

rich

on vacation

obvious
impracticalities
due to the involved
economics

somebody
has to do
the tough
stuff

the daily
grind

we don't
mind

we're grateful
for another
shift

another
task

thankful
that when we
finish

there will
always be
another
