A Part Time Position

I stand at the bar; it’s a part time position.
Thought over carefully, not a spur of the moment decision.
It was either this, or sit down with the wife for a talk.
I told her instead, I would take the dog for a walk.

I stand at the bar; it’s a part time position.
When I said, “Back in one hour! ” She’d stared with derision.
But I’ll show her, I will, I’ll show her who’s strong.
I’ll stick to two pints and prove to her, she’s wrong!

[Hata Bildir]
