Richard Schnap- A Poem


I have known cab drivers
Working twelve hour shifts
Who dreamed of becoming rock stars

And I have known dishwashers
Scraping plates of half-eaten food
Who yearned to be prize-winning poets

And I have known janitors
Emptying overflowing trash cans
Who longed to be famous artists

But they all remained servants
As the brief light from their windows
Surrendered to the supremacy of the night
