patterned strange

not just cut from different cloth

made a whole different way

patterned strange

I never understood

how she did not feel the 9-5

got in our way

there were always

things we could do

could get to be done

but no

she loved

that whole hanging with people

doing a good job for the man

somehow made all of it fun

while for me

all that was taking hours

precious time away from feeling free

sure bills got to be paid

the certainty of taxes

but those moments got taken away

from what little life we had left
