Overtime - Poem by Narayanan Kutty Pozhath

Overtime is a right there.
Workmen want overtime,
as they found it as income
beyond normal income.

Rule is made to avoid
exploitation by rulers.
Rulers are now exploited
by the workers over overtime.

If you want to make
money in this world,
You need to go to
the place where money is.
workers position themselves
where there is overtime.
They delay work,
to do overtime work.
Divides workers into
haves and have-nots.
Even the communists
fight among themselves,
for having and not
having overtime.
