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
clock,
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.
