All Work and No Play

When it’s always all work and no play

it makes for a very boring day,

but I’ll be staying here anyway.

 *

Overtime? How can I say no?

Just a few extra hours to go

so I can earn a little more dough.

But it’s time and a half to my dismay!

 *

We are all in such desperate need,

so many mouths at home to feed.

There is no choice but to proceed,

even if it’s no longer double pay!

 *

Damn this recession, damn this stress!

I seem to be earning less and less,

my finances are in such a mess.

I just want to turn and run far away!
