Bending to the task
never to waver or shirk
becoming bent with age
stubs of hands labored
embraced in hard work
dawn to night fall always
finding sleep a comfort
loving family and home
laboring honestly in duty
always to be counted on
unlike the sloth of today
pansied and entitled weak
playing idle games for pelf
voting for their slavers
politicians, teachers some
how many in our nation
living off the gnarled hands
of those willing to sacrifice
never to waver or shirk
bending always to the task!
