Candy Store

Mutter not little one,
no oneís awake Ö for you.
Cries from those
who are creating the candy store
ask that you help Ö
but, donít dare get the notion
that you will get to purchase,
or partake of the finished candy.
None of it is for you.

You may build the footings.
You may drive the nails.
You may find the people
to hear the cries from
the unsatisfied,
sweet-toothed children
until they are satiated,
but do not expect
your own anxious yearnings
to be so quickly appeased.

The store is not for you,
but do not cry out.
The proprietors can not hear your cries
above their own pathetic screams.

Author's Notes:

Many a time, as a finish carpenter, I've built a beautiful home for some rich person
only to never be able to do so for my own family.
