Bodies

by Philip F De Pinto





a body of work
a body out of work
a body of water
one dying of thirst
in close proximity to the latter
which is the body of water
is cursed
to die of thirst

a body of work
is all work and no play
a body out of work
is all play and no work
one dying of thirst
in close proximity to the former
or the latter
is cursed
to die of thirst
given a body of work
who is all work and no play
is too busy working
to tend to anyone's thirst
given a body out of work
is too busy playing
to tend to said thirst
this one dying of thirst
in either company
is cursed
to die of thirst

after a while
a body of work
who is all work and no play
as well as the body out of work
who is all play and no work
get so fed up with the incessant work
and the incessant play
they have no recourse but to fling
themselves into a body of water

in the meanwhile
one dying of thirst
in close proximity to the latter
which is a body of water
is cursed to die of thirst
given the body of water
is too busy taking bodies deep
of work and no work
to tend to anyone's thirst
