The Meaning of Life

The 9 to 5,

The crowded commute,

The career ladder,

The bank accounts,

The detached in the suburbs,

The doting family unit,

The physical and temporal structures of daily life,

Are just the construct of a

Beleaguered humanity

Trying to make sense of

A pointless life.

    Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all health, happiness and prosperity in 2018 🙂
    Apologies that I have been mostly absent from WordPress in December, due to Christmas-based stress and social commitments… and it may take me a little while to get back into the habit of writing and blogging, so please bear with me and my patchy posts over the next few weeks!
    In the meantime, as today is Throwback Thursday, I present to you a somewhat cynical and nihilistic poem first posted back in February. I feel it accurately conveys my misery at returning to work-related monotony…
    Still, nearly the weekend! 😀
