No man

No man is an hero
to the workmen
working jackhammers
digging up the street
the guy tilling your bathroom
doesn’t care exactly where
he puts his feet
him fixing the roof
is not just looking down
from height
sure they love your money
& the tea you bring
to keep ‘em sweet
but they know no doubt
they are the do’ers
& you the payer
the punter who can’t do
what it is that they can
a silent duel between
locked in ritual
where equals don’t meet
its best to smile
button feelings up tight
remember you earn the money
in ways they never understand
that makes the circle complete
