The Man Who Knows Of Stress

His head is full of worries the man who knows of stress
Lack of money his main problem his finances in a mess
With a wife and three young children and a home mortgage and other bills to pay
He never looks too far ahead he just lives for today
One who does not smoke or drink alcohol one devoted to his children and his wife
He works hard for small wages he lives an honest life
On the look out for a better paying job but jobs of any sort are few
That is a simple fact of life and that is nothing new
He never seems reluctant for to smile his feelings he disguise
But in him you see the worry if you look at his eyes
On Monday to Friday he wakes before daybreak and cycles to the work yard
One can surely say of him that he is doing it hard
Yet an asset to the Country is the man who knows of stress
And of him can one cannot say that he is a great success.
