Daily Prompt: Work

The Daily Prompt states: If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORK.

 

Rising early in the morning,

The sun yet to wake.

Eat a breakfast,

Brew the nectar of life.

A shirt, tie, fancy shoes.

A uniform, a costume.

Off to the cubicle for eight,

nine, sometimes more hours.

Life is work, work is life.

A midday meal to energize the body.

Maybe I’ll change paths,

Drive truck.

Fix computers.

Oh to write a book in my pajamas.

The bank account grows,

Only for rapid depletion.

Bills, utilities.

Work to pay for a car,

Only to have to drive to work.

Vicious cycle.

Work is pride,

Work is necessary.

Evening come,

Slumber soon.

For tomorrow, I rise,

When the sun yet to wake.
