The farmer is harvesting crops as he has done all year round. He must now go give the wheat he harvests to the pharaoh as part of the tax.
I am farming wheat as I have done all year
The poor farmer must give the pharaoh the wheat he just harvested to pay the tax. He must also thank the pharaoh for the wheat. The pharaoh now will make the farmers work on his new monument, The Sphinx
I wish I didn't have to work
The poor farmer wished he could get out of working
Now you must go and build my Sphinx!
The poor farmers wish they didn't have to work. One farmer tries to pretend to be sick but fails and goes back to work.
I wish we didn't have to work
*cough* *cough* I am sick
No, you are not you must go back to work
Now that to workers cover of being sick has been blown they must work on the sphinx until it is finished
