Wicked Awesome Poem Wednesday

I Keep Six Honest Serving Men

I keep six honest serving-men 
(They taught me all I knew); 
Their names are What and Why and When 
And How and Where and Who. 

I send them over land and sea, 
I send them east and west; 
But after they have worked for me, 
I give them all a rest. 

I let them rest from nine till five, 
For I am busy then, 
As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea, 
For they are hungry men. 

But different folk have different views; 
I know a person small ... 
She keeps ten million serving-men, 
Who get no rest at all!

-Rudyard Kipling
