A New Job
Recently I have been taking a break.
Mostly it's due to my unemployment sake.
My company decided to do away with my job.
I was just 1 of 140,000 poor slobs.
I started out on a feverish pitch.
Applying to every position that scratched my job itch.
But looking for jobs is tedious at best.
I found myself taking more frequent rests.
I managed to do some work around the house.
But I found it hard, and I tended to grouse.
My wife was patient, and helpful, and kind.
Even though I spent more time on my big behind.
Finally a jewel in the rough I had found.
