We rather want than work.

(A piece of nonsense)

 

We rather want than work,

we low and wriggly worms,

 

who gather at the begging bowl

and howl our want to the moon

but shirk and shrug at toil.

 

The weight of wealth

would crush our fragile carapace.

 

The bitter chore of being poor

takes up all out spare time.

 

A dime more or a penny less

would stir us from our hard won rest.

 

We gather stones and sharpen sticks

to pick at the scars of lower classes.

Question this and question that

but answers are for smarter rats

 

than us.

 

We rather want than work,
