A construction worker

Drilling holes and fixing pipes

This is my day job


By night

I slowly crawl onto my lonely bed

Covered by my sorrowful blanket

And into my imagination, I slept


A lover I am

Surrounded by heavenly beauties

Each one my name they praised

For I was their god of love


When the clock struck six

Reality comes knocking

A construction worker, is what I am

And on to the days work, I attend

Waiting for the night to come
