“SLEEPLESS IN WORCESTER”
(No relation to that movie about Seattle)
I’m sleepless in old Worcester,
I’ll take a triple expresso on a coaster…
Working straight out
I have no doubt,
By Saturday night I’ll need a booster!
Fourteen days straight, helping to cover
For my working buddy, grieving his Mother…
Can someone find quick
Sympathy cards in Arabic,
I wouldn’t do that for any other.
Want to attend church but may just sleep
Considering the hours I’ll keep…
His weekend days are double shifts,
Only one of which is my gift,
The other day, our boss will keep.
