GRIND

My morning coffee on the deck
A pure solace before breakneck
Birds sweetly singing!

My office desk a paper wreck
Everyday grind I've come to expect
Phone always ringing :(

    Before actually reading this I was somewhat hesitant due to the title (yes, my mind is dirty), but I was surprised and like this very much. Great job.

    Thanks Amy.. I assure you I won't be writing dirty lyrics as that would be in opposition to my constitution. However, in hindsight I could have picked a better title.
