Poem and Stories


Roll your sleeves
Go get a job
Get a pay
Get busy

If you need to get dirty
Please do
If you need to make it marshy
Please do
If you need to lift it up
Please go ahead
If you need to push it
No matter how little
Make an effort
Make sure your hands are busy

It may not be your best now
But get busy
Earn your living
While you wait for that blue-chip call
Stop being a decent Begger
When you can be a dirty earner
There is dignity in labor
Roll your sleeves
Get busy
