    Like Dolly Parton, this poem speaks of the toil of 9 -5. But as tiresome as that life can be, we just don't know what other possible
    realities there are - unfortunately, not all are successful country singer songwriters. We both know life can be cruel too!

    Well done, Milly. X

      Thank you Mr Darcy. The office environment can be mortally boring. I think I remember Sheena Easton also wrote a song called 9 till 5 (showing my age lol) Best wishes Milly x

    Nicely done Miss Milly and the humour behind it ;)

    I always thought... would people be happier doing 4 days with extra 2 hours and extending the weekend to blot out 'moody Monday'? M :)x

      Glad you liked it Michael. Yes it would be great if everyone got the chance to work a four day week and have a glorious long week end :) Milly x

    Milly, I think we have all dreamed of running out the door and not looking back. Being a worker drone myself it can grind on you. Well done-

    Much to my husband's frustration, I have turned my back on corporate career and am carving out my destiny in other ways. Not nearly as lucrative, but my soul is so much happier! I can so relate to this beautiful poem.

      Tanya, well done for your well timed escape and I wish you every success in your endeavours. Life is too short to be a replaceable cog. Peace with yourself and the freedom to make your own choices are gifts beyond price. Milly x
