It appears as a very simple poem, as it talks about a person in search of employment. But when one delves deep, it is revealed that it talks about the simple philosophy of life. The speaker needs a job to satisfy his needs. He is approached by people from different walks of life with different kinds of possessions with them. The speaker finally chooses a different kind of offer. The poem revolves around the bargain the speaker strikes in exchange for his service.

The poem talks about the bargain that makes the speaker agree to work.
