Help to work

Help to work
Hard working serfs
And slaves to be

Come by
Come by

The help is free
Hear and obey

The whistle curse
Makes war
Upon the poor
A thousand cuts
As punishment
For being

On display
And blocked
And penned
And locked
Into reliance
On a cruel
Game

The shameless mock
The Crooked Shepherd
Blames the flock
And TV offshores
Scrutiny

Lie down
Lie down

Accountability rests next
To Vision, Reason, Wit
And Wisdom

In invisibility.
