Working Life?

Thoughts from a moment of introspection, February 2009.

Longing for release from this
Pergatorious existence, so well personified
by Sisyphus, as we tiredly toil
to complete futile jobs of work.

The hatred of the day sucks out
the life and inspiration of the night
only allowing a wish to crash and
sleep instead of conjuring lines of
inspiration or playing with the kids
who already receive too little attention . . .

To enjoy the rest of this piece of creative writing, and more, please purchase Needing Sleep and other works (In My Words Vol. 2), available only on Amazon Kindle, for just $1.99!
