What it’s like to fill a hole…

Into the Abyss

Once upon a time they were called a road crew
but I have no idea what they’re called these days,
six men, leaning on shovels looking into their hole,
while another’s at work therein pounding or digging
and it is hard to tell who’s in charge in this circle
or maybe they’re all in charge or need to be today
while that one poor man does whatever it is he does
down in that hole which will soon be filled again.
