Loyde P. “Snake” Arender

SHORT WORKING DAY

The alarm clock awakened me,
“Get Up!” I thought, “Is this my destiny?
Do I live to work? Or Work to survive?
Is this really living? Or merely being alive?
Is this my calling? Is this my place;
To work each day in this Rat Race?”
I thought for a moment then to myself I said,
“To Hell with it; I’ll just stay in bed!”
