On my thrown in my place
I pervey all around
From the smallest insignificance
To the mightiest and most valuable
Passing on my virtues
And advising the unaware
Am I meek and quiet
Or do I rule with iron rod
I am self and strong
My land before me lies
Free and non descriptive
Pleasure and pain combine
All the same in every aspect
Protected by virtues rule
Domain of the free and alive

Thread bare cloths
Teaseld hair
Calassed feet
No shoes too wear
Cuts and abrasions
Cover my skin

Deafening noise
As bobbins flash
Clickity clack
As it passes by
Whir of wheels
Grind of gears
anticipation feeding fears

In I dash
To the darkened midst
Replace the shuttle
Spread the threads
Dash back out
No time to waste
Death awaits if you hesitate

The bobbin boys/girl
Work night and day
Stoor and mirk
Dimness of light
Education dealt on site
Family’s whole work each day
Producing wears for other too bare
