Nothing to stimulate my mind.
Working at the same old grind.
Days slowly turn into weeks while relief my soul continually seeks!
In pain I toil year after year while my back aches and my knee creaks!
When government officials upped the age to 67 for us to retire,
they gave no thought to the manual laborer.
I’ve already put in over 30 years in the same factory.
The fact that this doesn’t matter makes no sense to me.
Government officials didn’t consider those whose bodies are continually being abused.
They were only thinking of those with office jobs and muscles they never used.
So day by day and year by year I toil on in pain.
While the boredom and my aching body drives me insane.
Now old and crippled I work for close to minimum wage.
And pray that I’ll live long enough for retirement age.
