Field Fodder

it was quite clear to him that to achieve success
called for as much brain as brawn
and so he toiled with tact and bone
until he could do no more

and every moment he tried
as much as mind and body allowed
that his work and thoughts
became the very food he sought daily
from dusk ’til dawn

so a routine he followed
and which almost nothing ever foiled
year round… late nights and early morns
which meant the forfeiture of many pleasures
except when he was playing the field
to find inspiration for the poems
