Covering All The Bases

Updated on June 19, 2013

I Can't Stop Now

I have been doing this my whole life

Working my life away

I go to work and work hard

I get my job done and don't care if others don't take pride in what they do

They have to make their own choice to do what is right

Who are they fooling when the duck out of sight when work has to be done

Going home early and leaving the dirty job of cleaning up after their mess

Doing things half assed and with little pride

Their true colors come out

Like a Zebra with the flu

You can do what you want but don't give me what you've got

It brings you down and everyone else too

Don't you know everything you do goes home with you

You put your name on everything you do

Like an artist with his painting his signature is his trademark

Your work is your copyright

People everywhere will soon know

The things I have known for years

Cutting corners never helps

It gets the job done and leaves the mistakes for someone else

Off to another day to earn my living

Taking honor and pride in my work

For one day I will check all the things I have done

Then I will be happy to say

Quality was job one

      Thank you for this. One of biggest career regrets was how many people lost their jobs because I was able to do "whatever" so much better.

      The whole concept of your hub is so encouraging in our modern times , where many people have become selfish, cant be bothered etc., and as you say ´cut corners´.

      You have a great point, too many people cut corners and have no pride in what they do.
