Who cannot join the hard work?
Is it you?
We have to move this
Elaborate metal decorated practical thing
For some important reason
All the busy knowledgeable workmen
Have the appropriate keys, and you?
They have hot bodies and tired feet
The priestess gives them blessings
Go, go in that direction
What is it that they carry?
Are they slaves
Carrying something heavy
Like a big ceremonial plough?
Women and children are always there to look
And over everybody’s head
Is the decree
That you should work hard.
