HURRY UP AND WAIT

Hurry up and wait,

This pay check is late!

A week ago

You let them know,

Then how can we celebrate?

Many of us live check-to-check,

If it’s late we’re a wreck…

Gasoline tank

Nearly sank,

Getting to work, I suspect.

In limbo we are,

Just one round trip in the car…

Paymaster please

I’m on my knees,

We’re down to nothing but spark!
