Running Late

He ain't going to make it
to work on time
his boss will faint
if he don't
paint the bridge by nine.

He'll earn his nickel
he'll earn his dime
but he'll get written up
because he's not at work on time.

He'll put his pedal
to the metal
and give all he can
on his unicycle
but boss man will
still raise
a furrowed unibrow.
