Labor

Back

Labor

Two people laugh while working through interaction
The smile and humor expressing affection
Not of desire or sexual need
But brotherly friendship, a shared creed
Hard hats on, yellow and bright
A job well done, production of might
Soil and grit, hammer and nails
Building structures and blowing wind into sails
Harumph, heave, ho and ha
The bulkhead mounted, the flag flown
With duty done and lots cast
They stand tall, tall as their mast
Neither take claim to the fruit of their struggle
Shared in their joy, their labor together
End of the day, retreating away
Their job well done, all night they play
