Cuts and scars are tattoos of hard work.
They tell stories of pain, tears and resilience.
Bandages and plasters they seem, but chains of slavery they really are.
An illusion created by our crooked leaders.
The hands with the most tattoos is not the most celebrated,
But they are the unrivalled heroes.
A scarred hand today, is a shaky hand tomorrow,
that breeds the sagacious old man under the tree,
always ready to tell his tale
