Bamboozled No More! Division of Labor


 

Sun/sky/clouds/ shadows shape the city
Construction/ bricks/mortar
stand out and recede while standing still
People made the props, people made from other people
who were made by the force that made the props.
Because the sun clouds shadows shape the city
We work plan spend to build structures but in the end
It is the sun clouds shadows that shape the city and
We create the foreground
But the forms take shape as the earth spin on its axis
Determined by unseen forces.
We are humbled we are only able to create props
Against the sun sky clouds shadows
