I love my job almost as much as I do you
It's a good job
I may not get paid as much
but I more than make up
with an enormous sense of self-worth
My job

Some people just work to
pay the bills and put bread on the table
I couldn't do that
I need feeling and purpose
My job

Although i admit sometimes
it's not very fun
in fact, it can be pretty stressful
at the end of the day
I know I begun and completed the work
only by my own willpower

There is work that is play
There is play that is work
And play that is play
And work that is work
And in only one of these
lies happiness
I'm a pretty lucky guy
I love you and i love my job

    General Comment@MHHD2 It doesn't matter what or who happens to him, he's already made up his mind. It's disturbing that he LOVINGLY and meticulously constructs the table, and all the people around him are simple expectators that can't connect with him anymore. It's as if he's already gone, so he's just taking the final step, which is to make his own body expire. I find the role of the people more disturbing than his actions: no one tries to save him, they're ready for the show. The only entity with an expression of concern is the sheep! This is a man's slow and completely lonely path to disappearence.
