Second Thoughts

As the creaking sound
Of pond ice cracking
Beneath my feet
Fills the morning stillness.
I regret my chosen path.




Work and work
And work again.
Six 'doubles' in a row.
Four hours sleep a night.
God, I hate it, but...
Payday is good.
So I, like a fool,
Work and work
And work again.





All work is property of Daniel S. Irwin.
