Free From Function


Niamh A. O’Sullivan

I wonder how the elves felt

When the cobbler set them free

By making tiny shoes

For their tiny feet


What followed the delirium and dancing

Did they go elsewhere

To further serve

Or grow slovenly

And rot in inactivity


What drives us to achieve

What would we do if we now knew

That we are all we should be

That we are perfect as we are


Would our toil cease

Our striving stop

Our purpose falter

How scared are we

Of being free
