How Things Work

When it comes to machines,
I find someone who can make sense of it
then ask them do the work
which they do with logic and skill
fixing most anything if they have all the parts

For growing things
it is pretty much the same,
seeking out someone who has the gift
to work the ground and make things grow

this inter-dependency creates community,
a give and take, sharing one another’s gifts
to become productive and cooperative

competition has to be put aside
tapping into the intelligence of many
so all can survive, 

but when greed takes over
exploitation of labor for personal gain,
society falls apart never to be whole again.
