sleeping on the job

Look at Bob,
Sleeping on the job,
Away in his thoughts,
He is looking kind of lost,
I am tripping that he a sleep,
I wish I had more time with my pillow,
He snoozing loud as fudge,
I wish I was there too like ditto,
Not sure what he is thinking,
I guess he ain’t worried about his job,
Maybe the check bores him,
I guess ain’t nothing fudging with Bob,
Maybe he plotting about his passion,
Ready to make a jump,
Not living check to check,
Doing tasks with no benefits and ain’t even fun,
It could be that he is lazy,
But that might make me seem like a hater,
I guess I will find up once he gets up later,
We all got a path,
I ain’t trying to be like Bob,
Because my career is doing what I love,
That is also the same title as my job.
