I work as hard as I’m able,
though slow I may often be.
I never stop, I’m on the go,
what more do you want from me?
I do my very best to finish,
each and every day.
But I’m alone, there’s so much,
do you not hear what I say?
You claim that I am lazy,
but not in so many words.
Go ahead, give it a try,
you’ve drifted into the absurd.
I’ve said I’m doing my best,
I’ve said I need help each day.
Are you listening, or ignoring,
or only care if you’re the one to pay?
Two strikes are against me,
one more and there I go.
Your subtle threats and insinuations,
won’t work on me you know.
Tell me why I should work harder,
when I–the hardworking–you’ll never let be?
Another day, another dollar,
it’s all the same to me.
