We Toiled Away

Suspended moment, hour by hour the work saps into flesh and bone. Labor, with grueling hours to boot. Shovels, tools, and machinery placed aside. Ragged, sweating and greasy. Breathing in the dust; exhaling, followed by a cough.

Foreign and local laborers built the city, continuing and patching development to the country; and forgotten they become. Their names unlisted in history.
