Is it routine?
Or plain old crazy?
Why are we working so hard?
Why is everything so expensive?
Is there even a point to us?
Or is it plain old crazy?
Created, manufactured, forced upon us,
What are they for?
Survival, wealth, success,
Only the first one means anything
The other two are relative.
It’s just that the toil doesn’t much matter,
Nothing is ever good enough,
Grades, diplomas, achievement
Salaries, benefits, pensions,
Likes, followers, “fund me” accounts.
I suppose that last one is begging legitimatized…
