I Owe! I Owe! So It’s Off To Work I Go (Poem) - Poem by Dave Tanguay

Hurry! Hurry! Push and shove
No time to spare - for a little love
Be sure you do not arrive late for work
Or your boss will truly go berserk

Do as your told, and don’t ask why
For their rules -you must abide by
You mustn’t speak out of line
Or you may wind up on - the assembly line

If you want - to become a success
You must comply, - and always say - yes
You have not a mind of your own
Because you owe your soul to the savings and loan

So if you want to continue to eat
Your job and your life, you must keep discrete
For when you retire and your work is through
The government will tell you - just what to do

But when you die, - and you’re finally free in heaven
You’ll have no boss, to give you direction
