Work Place Blues

I have so much to do
I can't get it all done
To many balls in the air
I can't juggle every one

I am sure you've heard of me
The guy who dropped the ball
Now here I am 
Knocking my head against the wall

They say that nice guys
Always finish last
It seems that's the case
I'm getting there fast

Just one more job
Added to my plate
Now I'm in trouble
You're out on your date

In the end I'm fired
I think that's okay
Your turn to work
My time to play

Disclaimer: don't send donations, still happily working here in Kelowna. I am however considering setting up a holiday fund if you wish to contribute to that:))

    Work Place Blues, of which I think many here could relate to, me included. Another ring read from your writing tree, James :)

    Kelowna? Isn't that where people go for holiday? Enjoyed the funny po - hope you get to that full time play job soon! (ps. I've had several friends tell me how beautiful Kelowna is, but never been there myself)

    Sorry It has taken almost two years to respond *lol* yes Kelowna is indeed a vacation destination. Lake Okanagan, numerous golf courses, wineries and two world class ski hills. Extreamly warm summers and mild winters so it is pretty hard to beat.

    Good thing you added that 'disclaimer' my friend! Was just about to mail you a whopping big cheque when I'm actually struggling myself! Hey! But for a friend... LOL Fun stuff Richard! Cheers, Jack

    maybe you should just through the balls at your boss and tell the ape to earn it's salary - if you are your own boss, well, get your priorities in better order - a nice poem of woe Richard - J.A.B. %
