Ode to the Team

Ode to the man with two jobs

In public he smiles, but alone he sobs

Working hard for nothing

Only seeking for a little something

His wife works too

But this is nothing new

Always worrying about rent

Holding on to every last cent

Yet they are unique

No, they are not weak!

They are strong because they dream

Together they fight, a team!

The two refuse to settle

They strive for life’s gold metal

They refuse to sit still

Despite the world’s ill will

They know they will succeed

Yes they know this indeed

They never stop seeing

They never stop believing

One day they will be on top

All because they never stopped.
