Would It Really Matter

Rating: 4.5

Would it really matter if we didn't get up today.
Didn't go to work and just stayed home to play.
If we just stood idly by and left the work undone
Cast away the chores and just went and had some fun.

Whoever set the precedence of working through the day
To come home jaded tired, exhausted from the fray.
Must have had a sad existence tied to the work ideal
just like running endless circles on the hamsters wheel.

All work and no play, the bills, they cripple and sometimes slay.

You would be surprised to know yes it does matter. Everyday above ground is a good day.

Sounds good to me, the work ethic needs a little reconsidering methinks - but then there are those bills to pay! Very good Mark, well said.
