A Workingman’s Wage

A Workingman’s Wage,

By Terry Scott Niebeling

 

Yes, I make a workingman’s wage-enough to keep working, enough to pay and play.

 

Enough to keep thinking.

Enough to keep food on the table.

 

Enough to keep drinking.

Enough to keep life a bit unstable.

 

Enough to keep a roof over head and my girl in my bed.

Enough to open and close my door.

 

Who needs anything more?

 

I work the day for a workingman’s wage; I count the days until I get paid.

This is a workingman’s way.
