You’re busy like bees
Up and down you hustle and bustle
You buzz and she hums
In the hope of giving us a better life
You want us to have what you never had
What is that we wonder?
Cos you’re up and out the door before dawn
You left us sleeping
The ‘help’ got us ready and we were off to school
In the evening we go to bed before you’re back
When we’re lucky to see come home early …
We’re too sleepy to even say goodnight
You briefly read our diaries and smile
Teacher Cindy and Joy indicated that our homework was done
But it never occurred to us who did it …
We had the ‘help’ anyway
Come the Friday …
Business meetings and drinking sprees
You reward yourselves for work well done
On Saturday and Sunday, the game is the same
And we’re busy playing video games
The big screen is an excellent friend and babysitter
And you’re busy sleeping and nursing your hangovers
You’ve been working the whole week anyways…
We wonder how expensive is you time?
Cos none of us can afford it!
You ask me, how did end up with a strangers in your house?
We ask why do we expect oranges?
Yet we are made of lemon seeds …
How do we expect us to be different?
