Work-life Unbalance


I think that I might have a problem
It’s not something I can ignore
It’s taking over my life
It’s starting to become a bore

I seem to be spending too much time
Earning my monthly pay
I do quite like to have money
But there must be an easier way

I think it would be so much better
If I could just not go to work
And still be paid the same wages
That would indeed be a perk

I don’t want to seem like I’m lazy
Nor have my intentions misread,
But some days it would be quite nice
To not have to get out of bed

And really I would find it easy
To fill up the time I’d have free
I have bookcases of unread novels
Many films I’d still like to see

So perhaps we could try a new system
Cos right now I’m feeling harassed
And I just think I’d be a lot happier
If working hard was a thing of the past

    Even more apt, as a teacher.

    Actually there was a programme on radio 4 last week about returning to the 9 to 5 work ethic. Ok you would still have to get up and go to work, but if you enjoy your work, then there is no problem. I’ve had a couple of jobs which I enjoyed one was as a photographer but I earned nothing from it and it cost me thousands but I did a talk once and was asked, “Would you do it again?” I replied “Yes.”
    The other was being a DJ which had its ups and downs but when it was good WOW it was good. I can remember doing a disco in Totteridge for some Greeks who said, “You are now part of the family.” I left as the sun was rising and no, I didn’t get paid extra.
    So there you have it.

      I imagine you’d make an excellent DJ!
