Paradise lost

Standard

Up at 5am in the morning

Day had already dawned,

And the sun streamed through the window

Another day to look forward to toiling in the heat,

Another day of dealing with people

Who are rooted in negativity,

The public, the great unwashed

Very opinionated about God knows what,

Always demanding, always certain they are right

Even if they don’t know what it is that they’re talking about,

Mostly out of arrogance and a great deal of ignorance

Fortunately along the way you find people having good days,

Smiling and wishing me well

Appreciating the effort I make,

To help ensure their environment is always clean and safe,

They are a pleasure to meet but though they were once the many,

Now it’s evened out, without a doubt,

You’re just as likely to get moaned at now

Than praised for all that you do.

Then it’s home and I collapse in a chair but only for a short while,

For I am in great demand and have to run here and there,

Then it’s a short interlude watching TV,

Before it’s time to go to bed,

To get up at 5am in the morning

And do the same shit over again.
