More About People

 When people aren't asking questions 
They're making suggestions 
And when they're not doing one of those 
They're either looking over your shoulder or stepping on your toes 
And then as if that weren't enough to annoy you 
They employ you.
Anybody at leisure Incurs everybody's displeasure.
It seems to be very irking To people at work to see other people not working, So they tell you that work is wonderful medicine, Just look at Firestone and Ford and Edison, And they lecture you till they're out of breath or something And then if you don't succumb they starve you to death or something.
All of which results in a nasty quirk: That if you don't want to work you have to work to earn enough money so that you won't have to work.
