Jobs.

Because a little perspective wouldn't go astray.


A good man did his job today. He took a small, sharp knife;
With parents waiting, wracked with pain;
He made a cut inside a vein
Soon bluish skin turned pink again;
He saved a baby’s life.
An actress made a million bucks for playing someone’s wife.

A woman with a comfy chair and tissues close at hand,
Heard broken people talk all day;
She hardly had the strength to say,
She couldn’t take the pain away,
But she could understand.
A model won’t get out of bed for less than twenty grand.

Last night a guy with debts walked into bathroom stalls unseen.
He picked up sodden paper dropped,
Made sure the spew-stained floor was mopped,
The skid-marked, turd-blocked bogs unstopped,
And everything was clean.
An actor did his nut ‘cause someone moved during a scene.

Tomorrow, people in a lab will try to find an answer,
To why a small malignant cell,
Can feed and reproduce so well;
They’re getting close – soon tests will tell,
If they can starve a cancer.
A so-called star makes headlines posing as a ballroom dancer.
