Hard Work! - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Hard work! Hard work!
Condemned full
All the years of all
My life
All the days
And
All the months
All the years
And more
And more
As a train that tired
Grows
As age more inside
It grows
Yet
In this cage of such hard work
Since my boyhood I entered
And
I entered with my will
Shut up the rest all outside
Saw sometimes outside
But in
The cage of work stood in
And
As these verses and these songs
Read you, friends,
As the Principles of the sciences
The plays, epics, lyrics throng
Economics, social sciences all along
And the rest
That all points of civilization touch
At its lows and at its best:
Remember this,
I have been for years all long
As this
And will I think so remain
In the cage of work and work
