What’s the difference between winning the lottery and losing my job,
Except that I’ve got no money?
Never again will my workmates upset me!
Five years of hassle and where did it get me?
Never again will my boss make me cry.
Hiding my tears as the hours creep by.
All that frustration, and days that were manic.
All of those horrible moments of panic.
All the resentment and hatred have gone.
At last it’s all over; it’s time to move on.
Now I can sit in the sun with a book,
Crawl around galleries, linger and look.
Sit in a cafe, sleep in till late.
Blissful seclusion with nothing to hate.
I’ve regained my freedom, I’ve got my life back.
My time is my own, now I’m on the right track.
Now there’s a future, now there is hope.
Now I don’t feel that I’m struggling to cope.
Sod the promotion, sod the career!
Life carries on, and there’s nothing to fear!
What’s the difference between winning the lottery and losing my job?
Only that I’ve got no money!
