Politics, Society & Satire

Denizens

We are not citizens

Only denizens

Of concrete fields

We toil

Hands blistered

Clothes soiled

Handing over

All we yield

To our masters

Seeing nothing

Of the spoils

But the crumbs

Off their plates

 


Response to the Word of the Day Challenge prompt: yield
