Dignity Of Labour

To work is divine. Laziness, sluggishness, passivity, et al, Behold friends of a waster.

Oh stay at home, my lad, and plough 
Down here and not above, 
Leave Londoners at their zones, 
Away those idle hills
Shepherd your sheep, eat your meal. 

Stay simply, in company and in mirth 
Daylight some industry to birth,
Others, serve to humans worth; 
Many, many already in soil grave 
Alas!, grave for good and brave 
Gone for both they were.
