A Hobby - Poem by Jerry Abrahamson

Some people in the world
Don't seem to know the difference
Between work and a hobby
And that can be a problem

For, you see, there are some people
Who do things for a hobby
And then they don't accept the fact that
It might be somebody's bread and butter

    So true, so true. One man's work as source of bread and rent-money is another woman's joy and hobby, for delight and fun (Report)Reply
