             Everyday in this hellish heat, I am a volcano on his farm
             I productively plant the wheat, then I plant the pansy’s
             I begin to burn, still, I plough the dirt without a word
             I lay upon the grass and consume whatever he gives me
             The fat man who lives inside never gets me what I want
            The fat man only gives me what I need, and what I need
             Is a new plough, to plow the dirt and plant the pansy’s
I will erupt, but he will not allow me to, he is everything I want to be, and everything I will never achieve
He works for me, as he says, but he sits inside his Big White Home, watching as I slowly die on his farm
The ones like me, are built for death and never for wealth, as the wealth is only given to men like him
I work too hard, in this hellish heat, he will never understand why I plough the dirt and plant the pansy’s
I begin to boil, I look through the glass of his monumental home and understand what needs to be done
I wrap my hands around his throat and watch him as he slowly begins to die. He is gone, but so am I.

The skill in this writing is beyond me. May I ask, why did the masses die with him?
