When people aren’t asking questions
They’re making suggestions
And when they’re not doing one of those
They’re either looking over your shoulder or stepping
on your toes
And as if that weren’t enough to annoy you
They employ you.
Anybody at leisure
Incurs everybody’s displeasure.
It seems to be very irking
To people at work to see other people not working.
So they tell you that work is wonderful medicine,
Just look at Firestone and Ford and Edison,
And they lecture you till they’re out of breath
And then if you don’t succumb they starve you to death
All of which results in a nasty quirk:
That if you don’t want to work you have to work to earn
enough money so that you won’t have to work.
