Politics & Social norms

9 to 5

To spend your life living
in fear and ignorance
never exploring your dreams
is cruel.

To work hard for money
thinking it will buy you
all things that will make you happy
is crueler.

To wake up in the middle
of the night terrified by bills,
is a horrible way to live.
More horrible a life dictated
by the size of a paycheck.

Thinking that your 9 to 5
will make you secure is a lie;
such is the deceit of Capitalism –
a rat race, a trap.
