desk jobs

I complain all the time about desk jobs

I detest them

dehumanizing, human absorbed in machine

slowly stripping life and love away

until we too are simple machines

get up, get in car, drive in traffic, type away for a few hours, small talk, coffee break, traffic, sleep

and we do it all over again

caffeine is our gasoline

we stifling our feelings for the pursuit of numbers

if we get this much money then we will be happy

no no no, that is not enough

more money, more problems

less love, less feeling

gerbils on a wheel, going round and round

don’t stop or you wont get the prize

in all honesty, as much as I complain about desk jobs

I am apart of the problem – I have one too.
