Theme: Satire

Go On, Make a Living!

Go on to make a living
You've got bills to pay
Go on and get a job
To survive, it's the only way

Wake up at four
And pack up your box
Get to work on time
There's glory and honor and a pension maybe

Go on to make a living
Fill all hours with work
And some more when you get back home
Don't waste your time idling

Go on to make a living
Look at your neighbors, they're watching
Go on, get the car you've always wanted
You have your life to pay it all up

Go on, make a living
You must stab or get stabbed
It's life or death out there
Weakness will never be spared

Go on, make a living
By crook or a mean hook, make some money
Live life in the fast lane
Don't you see that's what really counts

Go on make a living
That's what all preachers do
There's power and honor and glory
In gathering as much as you can do

Go on, make a living
Be richer than the richest
Go on get that new car
And the girls that come with it

Go on, make a living
The world out there is yours
Go on, grab it all
There's so much to take with you

Go on, make a living
Make more, more and more
There's always room for some more
Go on, make a living

Go on, make a living
You don't have much time
Go on, make a living
Or go to hell and die!
Go On, Make a Living!1.jpg

Comments on this Poem

Comment The idea is good but the writing is a bit dispersed. A little more concise and it would make the poem better. Overall, it's a good one, Mr. Simon.
