As The Sun Rises

As the sun rises
I hear cries
of children
abandoned
by their parents
as factories and farms
beckon for another day
to pick hay
and join the fray

Reunion is at sunset
when parents
and children meet
for a while
before they again leave
A vicious circle
goes on and on
like a stuck horn
