This is a little ditty I wrote c.1999 that I remembered recently and thought I would share.

souls slaving away
i want to go to the zoo
let my people go

Around that time I also came up with:

alarm clock wailing
dragging my ass out of bed
0500 sucks

It seems I’m in a similar frame of mind these days, but at least I have a job. It occurs to me that 7 years ago today I was laid off, thus starting a very dark time in my life. I am grateful to be employed.
