"I Work All Day" by Barb Hensongispsaca
I have so much to do today,
but, where I'll start I cannot say.

The fence needs mending, that's a fact.
The list of parts must be exact.

I have to break some horses, too,
and brand some cows. What should I do?

I have to move that lonesome herd,
then with the cowhands, have a word.

I need to build a shed for Ma
and patch the open roof for Pa.

The well needs checked and cleaned real soon.
The garden needs be done 'fore noon.

The trip to town is awf'lly long
so my supply list can't be wrong

The wagon needs repair today,
there are some bills I have to pay.

A cowboy's work is never done
'cause I still work from sun to sun.

I eat my grub, three times a day
so I'll stay strong to bale the hay.

But Mommy says, "Don't fret your head,
just say your prayers and go to bed."

My faithful hound, he sleeps with me
to keep me safe 'cause I'm just three.

The book continues with Reversed. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
