Daily labor (rondeau)

*Er.. I tried anyway lol*


Daily, labor to have enough

when we find the times growing tough

for food and shelter for the day

if lucky, little spare for play


There’s no end to the hunger pains

deep fatigue from hours of strain

need fuel to arrive where we lay

daily, labor.


Do not stop when breathing comes rough,

or freezing in great, gasping huffs.

The stillness speeds the body’s decay!

Until those left wail their dismay,

chase the ideal (to have enough)

daily labor.
