The Cycle


We need not worry not to scurry for fear of wrongful doing
We do our best better than our captors could do
But they still yell and scream do it this way do it that way
What makes them so qualified to tell me how to do a job they have never done before
They have no experience no merit to base their word
Still they know best although I do not know why
I have done this job all my life they have only watched
They tell me how to hold my tools though they have never held them for them selves
Alas alas they know best why
because they are the captors
the slave drivers
the privileged
the ones that are too good to do the work themselves
they have an advantage on us
but when the tables are turned we really know the right way to hold the tool
but they will be crying 'this is not fair why do you get to tell us what to do'
and we'll say because we are
the experienced
the hard workers
we know best
but in a hundred years we will become the captors
the slave drivers
the privileged
the ones that are too good to do the work themselves
and they will be the experienced
the hard workers
the ones who know best
and starts the new cycle who will gain the upper hand?

I

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
