In The Eyes:

April 30, 2008

In the eyes:

I have been burnt cut and bruised
I have been scratched whacked and wailed on.

I have served others and have received little thanks
I’ve been leaned on till my legs turned weak.

I have even slaved under the
fat family cat

you would think they would treat me better
my masters
but till that day
I will continue
to serve... them.

I am
the kitchen table
