Kick The Dog Repeatedly: Then Free The Wolf - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

when the worker comes in
with all their heart
all their integrity
tries their best to learn...

to proform their tasks
with honour old school
encoded morals ties
but you overload them with new tasks

throw them into pool deep end
with chains on their feet concrete slippers
then do not be sudden surprised
after you mock the faithful worker repeatedly

if the worm turns bites back
put the dog down
put the mad dog down
kick the dog in the teeth...

then do not be surprised if the wolf
suddenly bites back goes for your throat
then remember how long it took you to learn
in that long ago time of your training
