Charade

"Oh!", said the woman
I daily ply my trade
lest i turn housemaid

"Ah!", said the man
I daily ply my trade
only because I'm paid

"Ha!", said the monkey
who was free and flayed
this sad human charade

p.s: I had originally posted this as a comment here but then I really liked it because I have a thing for rhymes, which is the only kind of poetry I understand so I've decided to honour it here :|

I wholeheartedly approve of rhyme. Bah, how much grief I've got from propah poetry louweing friends over this. Yay to rhyme!

Ah, merci beaucoup.

Yay to rhyme
in unison we chime

Also, I wasn't allowed to post a comment on the fb page to which you'd looked linked, but the collection of painted shoes were really nice.
