BEGGING FOR SUPPER

He sits and never leaves

as he goes about his business

of reaping and not sowing for

it is not the one who isn’t in line

who gets the most

 

it is the one who isn’t in first place

who does it the best

when it comes to begging

for suppers on fruits

of labours lost on the worn

and fragilely developed.
