i have a job which means i get paid to leave my bed
to ride the subway and read my book
to eat breakfast and lunch
you just have to think like you’re clocking in when you wake up
and you make much less an hour
and when you get home and you’re tired you can lie down on the couch
it’s all part of the work day
and finally you can fall asleep and that’s all for you

and if it’s less than minimum wage at least you have a purpose
you’re not sleeping in until two having lunch but calling it breakfast

and my bulbs are breaking through the soil - green fingers point to the sky
but they don’t know it’s still the end of december
they don’t know that the worst isn’t over
it’s spring for all they know but they’ll get buried in snow before they flower

and my cat is gonna die she’s only four years younger than i am
she’s been alive long enough to be in college and she’s just as wise too
cats have a pretty clear idea of what one ought to do
yeah, cats have it right.
they stick to the ground but they can still stand up
but i stick to the ground and i can still stand up.
