The Mask

The Mask

Must be put on

Before entertaining the Task

For its powers allow perfectly


To wholeheartedly amidst the work-place


The Financial/ Business World is at my grasp!

My working fate thus to

Adeptly Assimilate

Judge positively the preternatural office-driven spoken predicates

Never procrastinate!

Never give up!

We must propose

Always to keep of the shadows

Double consciousness

Natural state of being!

Imprisoned while the schism is

On the clock exposed!

Who knows?

The chance albeit slim

Might opportune to find that just person

Of whom with we can economically grow?

As I am of no means to chance the Toiler’s dive

Don’t you know?

To suffer the Angst of Poverty?

No coin-jingling jive!

Yea I aver the social will to materially stay alive!

Until the day when the competitive human race

Is economically exposed!

And One can repose

Ridden of the Individual multi-faceted mask!

And gain the prize

Of living at once!


Toil no more dominating prevaricating falsely

As the adoring apple of my exhausted eyes
