The Breadwinner

The Breadwinner

Let us dig down
Drill down to the roots
There is the foundation of wealth creation.
You say you can afford it, you have the means
And true you’ve worked hard for it
Not everyone a silver spoon

But what of the farmer
What of the soil tiller
What of the weaver and the wood carver
What of the miner, the water carrier?
That woman and man in far forgotten places
In Ill-regarded spaces, toiling unseen
Working to provide for an extended family.

That family extends to you and I
The believers that we make it
That we’ve made it.
But dig down, drill down to the root
And there you’ll find the backs of the real
The Breadwinner for all nations, on whose backs we build
The Breadwinner for the world’s consumption
Voracious as ever, blindly dazzled to disregard the source.
Recognition is all he seeks
Just reward all she deserves .
