Reprieve

He’s been slaving all week, had a boss on his back,

barking orders like crazy til he thought he might crack

The pressure was serious as a heart attack

Somehow, though, he made it through all that

He needs a reprieve after a work week

that’s been far too long

The love of his life gently says

“why don’t you relax”

and then they kick back 

to watch a film marathon,

but they drift off to dream

together with the TV on
