Chinese New Year (Ox Year Living Ox Life)


When an ox is strong and young,
it must get the work well done,
even under the hot sun.

When I was young and energetic,
I never felt tired a bit,
working very hard for company,
and my boss with a great loyalty.

When an ox is weak and old,
to a slaughter house it must go.

Now I am old and weak,
many excuses, my boss tries to seek,
to get me laid-off,
from my very job.

I am no difference from an ox,
after my esteem flatly knocked.

2009 is the ox year in Chinese Zodiac.
The credit crunch will be no less.
Many people struggling under the financial yoke.
In the end of tunnel they see no hope.
