Me For A Day

I am the quintessential worker bee

So let’s name this one day after me

I declare a holiday

In celebration of pay day

How does it differ from “Labor Day”?

The Man will do my job today

He’ll also fund my day of fun

He owes me this- it’s been hard won

There will be bonuses all around

Earned or not- because I’ve found

The Man rewards himself annually 

Regardless of company profitability

The Man’s meal – also named for me

Served on open book with bitter tea

The tea of course is sludgy brown

The book is far too loaded down

With work, bills, children, home repairs 

And hiding roots of greying hairs

Whether or not he sends it back  

Be assured he will be heavily taxed
