more or less

people stress to maintain pace
when nothing need be rushed
a watch is not my keeper
how we press for means to live
when air is free - building economy
on the backs of people driven
for more in a world of less
as we collect and gather
we collect and gather
plan for success in the future
while melting down in the now
cooperation seems to promise
more than competition, yet ying
yang enforce equivalent dose
pushing forth out of balance
premeditate a deeper fall ...
uncoiling watch springs may allow
today to play the role of today
rethink the whole operation
that has people working for work
rather than for value or progress
why did we sacrifice leisure
for a system of infinite pain?
