There are days of fun and days of grind
Mustn't let the admin get behind
Documents must be completed
Bins emptied, floors cleaned, birthdays greeted.
So it seems to me – and I could be wrong -
That life's a struggle all along
With tiny highlights now and then
To cheer us up; we must stay Zen!
How green's the grass on t'other side?
Does my neighbour have a smoother ride?
So it's “Action Stations!” for today
As I file, respond or clear away.
A sense of achievement brings a glow
That a lazy person cannot know
All done! Off to the letter box
Feeling happy – my life rocks!
