The bonus check is awesome

The job is really great

Got free time for things of random

Home on time and never late.

Steaks on the grill

The stars are bright

Wine to chill

What a great night.

Life doesn't get better than this

I want to shout outloud

My life is M&M's and Skittles bliss

Of my Rainbow life I'm proud.

I am strong and intelligent

I praise the Lord above

I'm glad I'm not indigent

Or a sad, sappy thug.

(inspired by the story of the Pharisee's prayer)
