MY REVIEW OF “WORKING-THE MUSICAL”, AN OFF BROADWAY PLAY AT THE NEW YORK CITY CENTER, WEST 55TH ST.

A Poem by anthony blake
"

THE LIFE OF WORKING

"

The drudgery of working

Sometimes you get no perk

But life is surrounding work

The idea of working is survival

When you go to work it seems like a chore

But let me explain more

Imagine working in an office from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Getting to working is no jive

In fact, one can’t wait until five

The responsibilities being all routine

Keeping on track with nothing in between

Meeting at 10:00

Preparation from when

Pressure during then

Presentation to impress

A Client’s Aptitude

I hope I am appreciated after I conclude

I must emphasize that the Client is enthused

A Firemen’s job to save and survive

There’s a fire at West 138thStreet house

Like a speed of light, we must have our flashes on shining bright

It’s a matter of life or death

Now that is a Firemen’s job

You have seen two jobs working

Its morning again, you are in a rush

You are talking on the phone, but you are telling the party to hush

You burned the toast

You have no time to finish what you cooked on your plate

You are definitely running late

You dash out the door

You forgot sometime for sure

I just missed the downtown bus

I will hop in a cab being a plus

Now stuck in traffic

All I do is fuss

Now I am starting to cuss

I need to calm down being a must

Traffic Traffic Traffic

It’s just the norm being specific

What you have just witnessed, “Working-The Musical” a play about working

Did I encourage you to quit or retire?

Do be inspired

No time to explain as it has expired.
