Society Could Subsist Even If Everyone Does Nothing - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

You worry much
Doing this and that
Cooking the rice
Washing the laundry
Cleaning the house
Feeding the pigs
Cleaning the yard

You are doing everything
And taking everything
You are having the
Burden of this world

And I pity you
I am here
Sitting watching
The sunrise
And marveling
And I
Simply wonder
About everything
Everyday
All these things
Are always new
To me
And this
Afternoon
I will be marveling
At the orange ness
And redness of
Sunset

The cool evening
The glitters of stars
And the song of
Night birds
And the hymns
Of the nearby
Church

And you complain
Of back pains
And a sprained
Leg and a cracking
Bone and a nerve
Wracked and wrecked

The problem with
You is you are
Overworking
You are at fault

Society could
Subsist
Even if everyone
Did nothing

I have things
And nature
To enjoy
And talents
Not to
Waste

The society where I live can subsist even if I do nothing.
And you are not a part of it. You refused to.
