There’s only so much one can do,
But everyone wants more;
You try to do your best, and yet,
It’s not quite what they’re looking for.
Just when you think you’re finished,
There are changes to be made;
Most are insignificant,
But now your work’s delayed.
So you make the required changes
And you’re pleased as you can be,
It only took you twice as long,
But it’s worth it, you agree.
‘Til someone takes another look
And has a new suggestion;
You try your best to smile but now
You’re having indigestion.
So, take a breath and start again,
It won’t take long to fix;
The day is nearly over now,
It’s only half past six.
