Life Isn’t Always Fair – Poem

Some people work hard

While others do not

Some people skive,

And don’t do a lot.

Some pull their weight,

And go the extra mile,

While others do the minimum,

And wriggle out with a smile.

Some end up working

Above and beyond,

While some do very little

Of them I’m not fond.

I was overhearing a conversation about how some people seem to always get out of doing things. Not just at work, but generally in life. Some don’t pull their weight within a family or community. Others just expect the world to give them what they want without them earning it. Some are just idle.

This was a tongue-in-cheek poem and meant to be a bit of a cynical reflection of modern life. But let’s face it, we all know people who seem to get away with doing very little.
