Work. Toil. The pain I put in the ground. For such a precious thing. Corn. The family enjoys their meal. They plant their leftover kernels. And wait for me to tend to them. Work. An endless cycle in which happiness is born. ©Demand4poetry 21 February 2013

I like the old Ink Spots recording - "I'd work Ifn I could find any pleasure in it." Regards, daver
