Ever get the feeling time's too short?
Work piles up – nerves pulled too taut?
Though one task needs your full attention
Interruptions on the 'phone cause tension.
So you get up early – plan your day
Allocate your workload – try and stay
On schedule: deadlines loom in sight
And appointments crop up – soon it's night.
Quaint expression “burning midnight oil”
But there's no hope for it – you toil
You're tired; you'd rather go to bed
Or indulge in some TV instead...
Meet-ups and Networking are fun
But you take on far too much – for one ...
Ergo working for yourself, it seems
Means “free time” is the stuff of dreams!
