Don’t Get Too Comfortable

Lulled into promises of safety
Anesthetized by your labor
Working paycheck to paycheck
With no end in sight
Sitting at the bottom of a corporate pyramid
Feeling the weight of the wallets above you
Glancing up through that glass ceiling
You’re agreeing to a culture that’s half-alive
And family relations that are half-destroyed
Cause the work’s not that important
If you can’t share your love
And what will you do when the layoffs come?
Where there’s a will, there’s a way
To live the life of your dreams
Don’t just passively agree with whoever dreamed this scheme

  1. This is very timely and hits very close to home. Well written…how the hell were you ever an engineer?

    • Ah, hahaha, yeah, I didn’t last long! I guess sometimes you need to just experience things so you can write about them :-) Thanks, and glad you enjoyed.
