It Seems Lady Luck - Poem by Francis Duggan

It seems lady luck is not with you today
As nothing at all it is going your way
The boss has refused you your request for a raise in pay
On good or bad fortune one does not have a say
That life can be a bugger why otherwise pretend
Your passionate love affair has come to an end
But things can only get better as has often been said
And better days of you may well be ahead
Underpaid and overworked you are one of those
That high unemployment is good for employers one has to suppose
When you ask for a raise the boss always tells you
There are plenty for the same pay willing to do the work you do
You did not get your wished for pay raise and your love affair did end
life is not always easy why otherwise pretend.
