work
is a
lot like
the British
strategy
in the
Revolutionary
war.

when one
lobsterback
gets mowed down
by the colonists,
they continue
marching forward
and another one
steps in to take
his place

but most casualties
in that war died of
disease

and the
outcome
for the
soldier
is the
same
for the
employee
at work:

you either
die or
you lose.

and feeling
like a
causality
now.

work is a disease

while I’m
living on
my knees

to escape it

I’d rather be
dying on feet

to face it

for it is better
to die than
to lose.

especially
when they’ll
have your
position filled
faster than
your column
written in the
obituaries.
