The Eleventh Day of Christmas (A Carpenter's Envy)

Back on the job site
Winter days would break my skin
Howling winds would slip right in
Whether dark or light

All the carpenters 
Bundled to keep the frost off
Hands cracking, painfully rough
Break time 'round heaters

Walls and roof complete
In walk comfy pipefitters
No need for jacket critters
Now ain't that a feat?

Pipers in leisure
Happy and deliberate
Lacking much -if any- grit
Their work all pleasure
