I Wonder Why

Written by: Marigrace Carretero

Why does a man break his back in labor?
in exchange for a short pleasure
Or run the dough to eat?
Why does he fetch water
and waste it on barren ground?
why does he swallow loads of fat
then suffer the pain or ill?I wonder why, i wonder, why?

has his brain been plugged
by senselessness?
i wonder why.
