Work Order, 2016

April 3, 2016 , , ,





Work is tangled between disordered sheets of paper covering a desk

Trapped in envelopes and receipts the drugery

Takes time to unravel, the benefits illusory

Piles of time seated in one place stuck firmly to slavery grotesque

Punching an invisible time clock, the hours drain slowly as we recheck

The mission we set out to accomplish which has dissolved into tomfoolery

Does each worker, in a separate way, discover workplace dysfunction peculiarly?

Our ancestors toiled in primitive times, without electicity, running water, or tech

What is the goal of work today as we compare it to history?

We live to work, not work to live, and thus rob ourselves of mystery



Ride the poetry train all month in April to enjoy the work of poets everywhere. Find #NaPoWriMo participants here.  I encourage you to find new work you like.
