    Excellent poem, Craig. My only suggestion would be to change 'They work so hard well into the dark' to 'They work so hard, well into dark.' It still makes sense but by dropping the 'the' I feel it flows a little more smoothly there. Apart from that, the rhyming is effortless.

    All the best and a very happy Christmas to you,

    Ben

      Merry Christmas to you and yours too dude,

      Have adjusted as per your suggestion. It was a very quick write so I never really scanned it properly

      Regards

    Craig, a wonderful tribute to all the farmers of this world. My uncle had a farm, it's a hard life with very little time for relaxing. Well done with this-

      A hard life indeed, and not one I would like to live. Yet for the most part they are happy.

      Up with the birds and often to sleep long after. Yeah they can make a bloody good living, but their down time is minimal.

      Oh and oh my god the smell lol.

      Thanks Bren, hope ya'll had an amazing Crimbo time.

    When I read this I think of our local sugarcane workers here. Yes, working in the fields is really hard work and they are paid only around $2 a day. They are our unsung heroes as our sugar industry wouldn't survive without them. Great poem.

      It's crazy to think that in this day and age people are working for so little, while the owners of these companies are worth millions.
