Down on my knees, the
Sharpshooter® shovel in my hands,
I am digging, not praying.
Let political crises seethe,
let armies go to the brink,
my attention is on this one thing.
No task is done without
setting aside the others.
They are left undone
while we work and
while we recover.
Somehow the world goes on.
Some say the world is
better for our absence.
The multitude does not even notice.
Did you?

I can't even imagine what that would cost to have someone do what you're doing! Always read bamboo was tough to get rid of.
