I worked for chaff and earning Wheat

I worked for chaff and earning Wheat

I worked for chaff and earning Wheat
Was haughty and betrayed.
What right had Fields to arbitrate
In matters ratified?

I tasted Wheat and hated Chaff
And thanked the ample friend
Wisdom is more becoming viewed
At distance than at hand.
