Take this job and shove it

Trying hard to hold on to my temper
Has become impossible, just impossible.
“Better keep cool, take a deep breath,”
The voice in my head yells at me.

“What a jerk, that man is nothing but a jerk,”
I yell back at my voice.
“As usual he does not know what he is talking about,
always thinking he knows everything.”

Payday is today and you guessed it, I’m broke.
My check that is big enough to choke a horse,
Is for mortgage, car payments, ez-pass
And ten credit cards maxed to the hilt.

If it wasn't for a minor detail
You know, like bills.
I would quit today, I know I would!
But how can I, or, could I? 

There's not much money left over
But wait, it’s more than I thought
So, maybe, just maybe
I could go into his office and finally say:  

"Take this job and shove it."
I’m not gonna take it anymore.
I'd rather be a failure at something I enjoy
Than a success at something I hate.

See ya.
