You work unseen

You toil through the day

Often at night

With little or no pay


No one sees you

No-one to sound the chime

Appreciations silent

Yet you sacrifice your time


You don’t complain

When a thank you goes unsaid

Your feathers are not ruffled

You just plod along instead


No pat on shoulder,

No spot light just for you

But you continue to sweat

Until the job is through


You work behind close doors

In secret you give of your best

You don’t sound a trumpet

And you rarely stop for rest


But someone is watching you

He can see behind the screen

And your reward is certain

As you work behind the scene
