Keeping away his jackhammer and
Thirsty; sweaty and dirty,
The taciturn worker;
About his existence of the world.
Late night footsteps
Across the street,
Crane necks girders and,
Steel bones in moonlight, remind him
Of project shelved, fenced off and unfinished.
Tight lipped and staring,
He wonders about the world around him.
While shrugging off the cold,
He puts his shirt back on,
And the echoes of his daydreams
Touch a humming static on his skin.
As he watches the people distantly,
He wonders at his fate;
His forever war with the wages offered,
Unfulfilled dreams and the blatant apathy of the contractor.
Why was he put here?
To follow in the footsteps of the construction worker..!
