For We Are But Donkeys

Let the King take His ride On the street paved with glory The hails and the cheers The shouts and the screams They are not meant for us  But the One that we carry For we are but donkeys
Let His choice not irk us Should he pick a mule ne'er ridden Or one without a medal A newbie to pedal May we remain content To work while we're hidden For we are but donkeys
May we never take pride On the miles that we cover It is not by our strength Nor is it by our might We achieve such great feat But by the hand of our lover For we are His donkeys

Before we start…

They had told me they will "show me" how and I went for today's meeting expectant. I stayed awake till 1:30 am this morning getting ready the results I needed for the meta-analysis as it is called, all for them to tell me today, "use the guide in your notes". Anyway, I'm not very surprised. Thank God I was given a heads up by a friend and former MPH student who had told me not to expect them to put me through because they did the same in her time. I guess I have to dust my notes then. I have 4 days of labour in front of me. I've counted today out 'cause I need a breather from the past many days I&#…
