Who would you be?

A need to perfect,

Who’d be a chef?

Face constant abuse,

Who’d be a ref?

Low pay and long hours,

Who’d be a nurse?

Family in mourning,

Who’d drive a hearse?

Surrounded by doubters,

Who’d be a preacher?

Uncontrollable children,

Who’d be a teacher?

Swimming in darkness,

Who’d be a diver?

Queued on the M6,

Who’d be a driver?

Broken down fields,

Who’d be a farmer?

A broken old heart,

Who’d be a charmer?

In another life, who would you be?

I’d be me…that’s who I’d be!
