The Work Thief

All hail the work thief:

The one first in the gym and last to leave.

The one whose thirst for knowledge is forever unquenched

and whose hunger for self-improvement is insatiable.

The boy who loathes laziness.

The girl whose paradise is found in the sweat of track practice.

So all hail the work thieves in the world, endlessly crunching extra hours.

For these are the people who will ask for no credit.
