POEM: The Hard-working Old Man

He comes in to work early every day
He leaves late in the afternoon
For 40 odd years he has worked in this building
Keeping order, maintaining structure
He always seems to be on some mission
He almost seems to love his job
Despite the fact that it doesn’t seem too exciting to anyone else
To see it is almost inspiring
It makes you wonder what went wrong with you
This man is nearing 60
Yet he works with the passion that a 20 year old should possess
And if an old man nearing 60
Can do that
Then we are all witless worms
Shits of the earth
And we deserve not an ounce of respect
