Born to Work

by CathieT
(Hampshire, UK)



I wasn’t born to work you know,
Not like a snail is born to slime,
Pecuniary incarceration.....
That should be a crime!

I don’t do any damage,
To your veggies or your flowers
Yet I’m bound to work, not free to roam
For years (and by the hour!)

I wasn’t born to work you know,
I’d rather be a snail or slug
Inflated monthly targets
Don’t mean much when you’re a bug.

I know a slug is not a bug
So pedants please stand down,
Poetic licence there I cite,
So lose that crazy frown!

I wasn’t born to work you know,
I’d rather be a flea
On second thought though
What I want
Is to be a work free me!
