Work sucks
and I strongly advise against it
it's usually dull
frequently tedious
seldom pays what it's worth
and tends to aggravate the
hell out of you
at least once a day
My advice is to have
nothing at all 
to do with it.

Move back in with your parents
and let them bust their asses
they seem to so enjoy
reminding you of all
they've suffered for your sake
that it seems almost cruel
to deprive them
of the satisfaction.

Hard work, they like to tell you
is a virtue, but so
I say, is laziness
for while hard work may
pay off in the long run
laziness always
pays off right now.
