PAD Day 9

10 Nov

I’m only posting this here because the formatting doesn’t work on Poetic Asides; there’s a real post coming along in a bit.

The Dichotomy of the Modern Working Life

Never slow down.

…………………………………………..Slow down.

Get rich.
Get famous.
Get everything.

…………………………………………..Success sucks.

…………………………………………..Stroke. Stroke. Stroke.

…………………………………………..Rest. Recover. Recuperate.

…………………………………………..Resign.

…………………………………………..Rejuvenate.

Rejoice in the life
of the dear
departed drone.

    You’re having a busy time with all these poems and posts: I’m so glad to see the prolific Tilly again!

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
