Money-rich and Time-poor

Money-rich but time-poor,
A scenario common for high earners, some full-timers
And maybe Chiefs who are skimming
Extra profits and perks
The workers could get.

Create a more equal distribution?
Take the cream off the top of the milk
And spread it below-
Recompense the workers by subsidising
A free day; so give them four.

Why do peeps need to have no life
Asides from the weekend
Wearily scraping back some sleep,
Time with kids or
A bit of housekeeping.

A free day during the week
Doesn't have to be, time-rich, money-poor.
