It Has Been Noted
It has been noted that you spend your time thinking, instead of doing.
Time that we cannot get back. Time that we have paid for and expect
Converted. You are a conduit for our love.
You are our weapon of mass production just for these
21 hours per week. 1000 hours per year. Is it so much to ask
That you do your thinking outside of work hours? That you confine your
Existential longings to your lunch break? And cease to question
The semantics of the telephone? Please. It’s for the weekend.
If you want a mind like a six-year old, go back to school.
The world has other filters, other writers, other niggling nitpickers
Who are better at it than you.
And no-one gets paid to ask questions. Them’s the rules.
