Work, work and more work

Isn’t it all just for money?

No wonder it’s by sheer luck

I survive this monotony

Life isn’t any more charm

Its a devil's race that goes amok

wish I could but stay calm

to work, work and forever work

Very well said. We work until we're dead,
Then wonder why we lost the life we never lead.
