The lullaby Of Old Rattling Bones

Toil and trouble
Toil and trouble
sweat and tears
work and sweat
is all I will ever know

to the heel's of my feet
to the brim of my head

I will work till I am dead

toil and trouble
trouble and  toil
there be no peace for me

to the heel's of my feet
to the brim of my head 
I will work till I am dead

no rest, no sleep
my bones will, bend
but, never shall they keep 
and I will never find
true peace 

toil and trouble
trouble and  toil
to the heel's of my feet
to the brim of my head

I will work till I am dead
and with, not a coin
to place, apond my head

and my feet will slowly,
carry me, too the dead
and without crumb
to point the way

I shall wonder
with a downed head

toil and trouble
trouble and  toil

we shall work till we are dead

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
