For the Workaphobe

Fear not the assembly line.
Fear not the hammer and nail.
Fear not shovel, wheelbarrow,
Neither pitchfork, nor the bale.

But fear hunger and pain:
He that works not, shall not eat.
From the pillar to the post -
Navigation on the street.

For labor is a blessing,
A tool within the hand
Of the folks who would advance;
Be it a woman, or man.
