Like A Work Horse!

Working hard

Beaten down

Few rewards

I start to frown

Am I human?

Or am I cattle?

Some beast of burden

Prone to prattle?

My body aches

My back, my knees

I go to rest, they say

“Get up, please”

No reward

Nor hope of pay

Not on time

Not on the day

But work I must

Of course! Of course!

Not like a man

Like a work horse!
