2 Many Workers 2 Service The Queen

too many workers
2 service the Queen

the drones push noise
into firm bound packets, laying
low under the metronomic tic
toc of Queenie’s icecold heart
mean while, above
the tunnel’d womb of her e
normous love, the work is pro
longed & the wallets made strong,
sending crates out as heavy
as a drones’ day is long,

& the vol
umes ship &
Her fine wrist
lifts &
the workers
push pencil
from 1st to last
shifts, but

!remember ye!
what she bad Queenie say:
a worker’s made for workin’ &
author is just the 1st six letters
of author-ity.
