Employment Opportunities

I thought to be an axe murderer,

But I didn’t have an axe.

It really is a messy job,

And I am far too lax.


Bankers work with money,

Billions I am told.

But money’s such a dirty thing,

I think that I will fold.


Doctors, lawyers are in need,

But their schooling last so long!

It does not fit my rules of life,

Though some will think I’m wrong.


A writer’s life is full of wit,

And angst, to tell the truth.

The boundaries they do not exist!

When creating words forsooth!


To sit with paper, pen in hand.

It sounds a wonderful gift.

Perhaps I’ll try my hand at that,

And see where I do drift…

    I think you might drift into a draft. But paper and pen ? Quaint you my dear ain’t !
    When you could be an eco-writer ! Working with one of the new wonder tablets you could churn out tomes and shave off degrees while saving trees. Or something sorta like that.

    Hahah! What a witty ditty! So glad you didn’t choose the path to axe murderer. It would be hard to keep ‘sharp’ for that. But writing? It’s in your blood Pam. You were born a wordsmith and you wear the mantle well. We all benefit from your wise choice.

    You have drifted well dear lady, be it through storms or calm, waterfalls or streams, a word, a jest, even a dichotomy to bend them all 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
    And speaking of which…One pen to rule them all, one verse to find them, One word to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them; In the Land of Mordor where the inkblots lie 😂 🤣
