My First And Final Wish

The rich man's barn isn't meant for me,
So I don't slumber when cock crows early.
Let's till the earth and clear the spring
While others crush and dine and gossip.
Come and join hands to till earth with me,
Light glitters and glows, flickers and quench,
Until nightfall, who knows who'll sleep
In the rich man's barn and eat his dog meal
And who'l sit among the eminents to speak.
