Work of the Week #9

Work of the Week #3” was about the Warrior Poem.  This week shall be about its less-popular counterpart – the Commoner Poem.

The similarity of the meter in both works suggests the same bard devised them, but the truth about their origins has since been lost to Time…

THE POEM:

We work the land, we work the home.
To work we go, to home we come.
We build the temples, we build the walls.
We are low to the ground, and we work the malls.
A king is good, if good he rules.
We will do as we’re told, but we are not fools.
The children go learn, they do the chores after.
We farm, cook, and cut, to avoid a disaster.
Life is good, if good is the wife.
We are hearty and bold, but we don’t need a strife.
We have what we want, we have what we need.
With our compassion, we plant every seed.
We suffer the drought, we thrive in the boom.
There’s always a worker, they always assume.
We do as we’re told, but we are not fools.
A king is good, if good he rules.

Until next time….
