Seeking income, running down.
Meeting challenge with no frown
Hiding us within your fur.
We sit back without a stir.
You fought hard for all of us.
Your right hand, especially.
I tried hard to measure up.
Comes with stuff, as Dennis says.
We’ve been through a lot these years.
All that’s happened testing tears.
Putting our shoulder even to
Jobs got done, and people, too.
Never thought that I’d give out
Before the day that you gave up.
Let them drag the whole concept
Into the ground on which they slept.
Times are hard under this toad.
Old things stay around until
The new things come and they are told
Eat what you can, when you can,
Money flows back in spades.
We don’t see it, but we just
Keep on giving, how we’re raised.
Heaping coals upon their heads.
