Labor Is Identity

Music: Fugue from the Fantasie and Fugue in d minor.
By Max Reger. Sequenced by Sergei Winitzki at Kunst der Fuge.

Labor is identity
As one is what one does.
Beware the work that will not sculpt
One into what one would.
Remember well the bunko bees,
Defined by work that is
Awash in ugliness and guilt,
Yielding little good.
