Work of art

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Object of My Dejection.”

The reason for his dejection,

Was not that he had nothing to do.

The reason was—

He had too many fun things to do,

But would not be compensated for any.

So he learnt, oh, how he learnt,

To love the things he was paid for,

He learnt to love the art of work.
