It's true , I'm on a job hunt--

The phone may ring today.

I haven't cash to pay the bills,

no fun money for play.

I pace and drink my coffee

and seach the classifieds.

I surf the net, apply online,

and pray for favorable tides.

Then at last the phone rings

(I've nearly gone berserk)

And now I have to ask myself

Do I really WANT to work?
