.

the depersonalization of contemporary society

and this "civilized" world gives little value to emotions

this culture expects you to deny your own feelings for a paycheck

it degrades the psyche

the business world is no place for the sensitive introvert

according to you there should be millions of happy, energetic, outgoing robots

i am not the standard

i come with anxiety and observation

im sorry business suit

you do not fit me

It's so true. The business world is made for cold-blooded creatures. Shoot for the top anyway, and change it from the inside.
Nice piece.

Wonderful poem. It's hilarious in it's own way. I don't know if you were shooting for a funny poem, but I thought it was pure genious. Great work, and keep it up! =)

You should read Zed (he is on my fan list) and his views of the office zombie. Now, what is his story called, A Day At The Orifice. It's a bit over the top but it's a fun side-read with this.

Have a great night VE!

So very true... I love the last two lines - wish it were possible (or easy) for us to leave our jobs and do something more meaningful. Perhaps we could!
