The dignity of labor

Labor raises honest sweat;

Leisure puts you into debt.

Labor gives you rye and wheat;

Leisure gives you naught to eat.

Labor makes your riches last;

Leisure gets you nowhere fast.

Labor makes you bed at eight;

Leisure lets you stay up late.

Labor makes you swell with pride;

Leisure makes you shrink inside.

Labor keeps you fit and prime,

But give me leisure every time.

(by Robert Bersohn)
