Servants of Knowledge

as servants of knowledge

we stream to the storehouse

sort books

cook books

eat books

all for their power

armed with their power

we rush to the podium

in front of those hundred eyes

fifty hungry heads

yearning for the power

and knowledge of books

we serve them

with chalk and board


we serve

without discrimination

we serve

the power of books

we serve

knowledge and skills

we serve

for servants we are

and servants we remain
