On Call Days and Mondays

Sitting at my desk and feeling low
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Work into the time won’t fit
Too much to do
Working the whole day through
On call days and Mondays always get me down

What I did I used to find worthwhile
Could always have done more
Now it just feels a chore
Get the job done
Now it’s no longer fun
On call days and Mondays always get me down

Sadly, every week it seems it ends up much the same
Demands constantly made on me
Sadly, now the job’s like this, it’s really such a shame
It’s not how it ever should be

What I feel I’ve never felt before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Its all a mess
Criticism in the press
On call days and Mondays always get me down

Sadly, now the job’s like this, it’s really such a shame
It’s not how it ever should be

What I feel I’ve never felt before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Its all a mess
Criticism in the press
On call days and Mondays always get me down

Its all a mess
Criticism in the press
On call days and Mondays always get me down

After Paul Williams and Roger Nicholls

Nothing particularly interesting to say other than I'm a GP with an interest in emotional well-being, an avid Somerset County Cricket Club supporter and a poor example of a Christian who likes to put finger to keyboard from time to time and who is foolish enough to think that someone out there may be interested enough to read what I've written. Some of these blogs have grown over time and some portions of earlier blogs reappear in slightly different forms in later blogs. Apologies for the repetition. What I have posted today (6th August 2018) consists of what I have written over the last few years - whether I write anything ever again, only time will tell.
