Forget the nine till five
This modern working life
Calls on all hours of the day
And every day of the week
Like a routine well bedded in
It goes on and on and on
A contractual obligation
Just to pay the bills
Put food on the table
Retirement is anticipated
Till then the working day
Is forever repeated

We wish for retirement yet we do not want to get old. Work is hard yet when challenges are met and success it is rewarding, Though rewards are sometimes few. Great to read. Oh for the lotto life to help myself and many others.
