E if for Ergophobia #atozchallenge

There was a man whose name was Kirk
He feared many things, especially work
Work, he said, corrupts his soul
He much preferred to be on the dole
Thus many a responsibility did he shirk

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Ergophobia is the fear of work.


***This has been written for the 2015 A to Z Challenge. My theme is the A to Z of Phobias. Entries are written in the form of a limerick. You can read my other entries here***

Until next time,

    Well, I do suffer from Ergophobia every now and then but nothing works like a shrill cry from my baby to pick myself up from the couch and start doing my job πŸ™‚

    I think I could develop into being a Kirk, but I might have to wait until I retire!

    Fun theme with an educational twist!
