Would It Really Matter


Would it really matter if we didn't get up today.
Didn't go to work and just stayed home to play.
If we just stood idly by and left the work undone

    I simply loved this poem! That's what I am going to do tomorrow...Spend tomorrow just lazing around, enjoying myself...instead of rushing to office in a crowded metro on a Monday morning and getting back with strained nerves and an exhausted body (Report) Reply

    Title first touch me to add a more sentence with this writing.....nothing would really be any matter if the earth stops its movement just this very moment................ And finally my comment is, its a nice poem by its approach, its used lucid words and the style of catching readers attention..... Nice. (Report) Reply

    I stand by no verse form, four line verse, free flow, rap, whatever. I thought it was said in fine form and of worthy subject matter. good job. (Report) Reply

    We're the worker bees, the drones and the 'queens' are the monied who don't have to work, however we hold power because without us the 'queens' would come unstuck, not just because they'd have no money, but because they'd have no food, no electricity or gas, no medical staff, no post, no cars, as we all know that these have to be made or brought in somehow, provided by the people for the people. Let's take our hats off to the little people, the worker bees! (Report) Reply

    A fine poem that deserves all the good reviews. It might have been better to stick to a four line verse form in the
    third and fourth verses, but that`s just my personal opinion, and the most important is that you transported
    your message with poetic skill, good write. (Report) Reply

    Again hears the voice of genius ancestors. Nothing would be matter if we go back to our life based on nature. And the contrast of life reveals well by words. If anyone get opportunity to live without his mechanical dailiness, the poet would have ti write the reverse. Actually human soul can not bear monotony at a stretch. Nice....Pranab k c (Report) Reply

    I agree with what you say but no work all together leads to an even more boring monotonous life with no reason to get up in the morning...which then escalates.....but yes in so many ways we are all like hamsters on a wheel; whichever way we exist.
    Good write, nice structure and message.

    Witty and oh so true. All the work isn't worth it if you don't have fun along the way! Enjoy this poem and good words to live by too. (Report) Reply

    'cause if we don't let off some steam,
    we'll wind up a quivering wreck.

    Workaholic is the new term, implanted in the brains of people to wake up early morning to look for money to pay for the mortgages. We are dressed up, given spacious comfortable office and we are made the living machines, for the bosses to enjoy.. (Report) Reply

    It would be tempting, but then I'd want to take every day off. Enjoyable poem. (Report) Reply
