Career

I've worked, he said, with a world weary air,
for fifty years: and I believe he meant
that long; though come to think of it, being fair,
half that time spent asleep, a quarter spent
in recreation; meal-times be included,
commute that sentence to one twelve years max;
and further, if we aren't to be deluded,
this latter halved in the space to relax
during work hours, day-dreaming or chatting;
half that, mechanical response no thought
requiring, hardly work; and counter-stating
the original claim, habit to nought
to reduce the balance: might he have said
he’d done an honest hour's work, like me, instead?
