Fast Poem 30: I Love Work

I am best when I have work to do.

Work is my drug of choice.

Work obliterates the

painful reality of neo-tyranny.

Work dulls the unbroken monotony

of soul choking bureaucracy infected society.

I get high knowing someone needs me

to get things done ASAP

and when I rise

I need not decide

how to fill my day.

Work is my drug of choice.

I am best when I have work to do.

    Here we say ‘B’te’a’von! when walking past even a stranger eating lunch. If the guy is also working, it’s ‘Avodah Na’ima’ The first is straightforward Bon Apetite, the second Pleasant Work, roughly.

    I’m glad I clicked over. As good as this poem was on the other site, it’s even better here.
