Who Does Enjoy The Fruits Of Labour? - Poem by Ramesh T A

Hard working man goes on working to earn his livelihood;
The products he has produced is being marketed and sold by
The broker giving him a low amount being the first sale!

The farmer or labourer is happy that he gets regular work
And pay, the fruits of labour are enjoyed be the receivers
Such as the broker and sellers thereafter one by one here!

Like the farmer or movie director, who works hard, never
Knows what will happen to his produce or film until it is
Welcome by wide audience or else he will be nowhere ever!

The fate of writers and poets is also like the above workers
Who work hard feeling that their debt is to serve on ever
Sans expecting high pay or reward but regular work and pay!

Fate of the hard working lot turns into a boon only by the
Nod of luck not knowing when the lady luck will smile on one!
