You Can'T Keep A Job

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why should I let you sleep...
When,
I can't get a wink.
And,
You want even let me nod...
When I've worked real hard.

Why should I listen to you...
When,
You never listen to me.
And,
I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!

But you tell me how you work,
All day!
And you say you have no time,
To play.
And...
When I turn away you tell me,
I'm being evil.

I'm just trying to do my best...
To get me some rest.

Why should I let you sleep...
When,
I can't get a wink.
And,
You want even let me nod...
When I've worked real hard.

Why should I listen to you...
When,
You never listen to me.
And,
I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!

I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!

Why should I listen to you...
When,
You never listen to me.
And,
I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!

'Today? '

I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!

'Today? '

I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!

'Today? '

I find it real odd...
You can't keep a job!
