I'm not one to complain you know
Happy to reap seeds that I sow
Nobody told me about the sick
Running to get the bucket quick!
Ah, too late, uck it, missed a trick
I'd heard about the colds and coughs
Cuts and bruises from falling off
Nobody told me about the nights
Every three hours reach for the lights
Come the morning, not a great sight
I thought that when illness lurked
They'd be in bed, and I could work
Nobody told me that when they're ill
They don't stay in bed or sit still
Full time job just to give them a pill!
Nobody told me - probably for the best...
