In praise of Idleness

the evil worship of work,
the stupid cult of productivity
and the idiotic drama of professionalism
the scandalous criminalization of laziness
and the unnecessary guilt of procrastination
the foolish dream of greatness,
the silly pursuit of popularity,
the pointless mirage of ambition
and the hidieous doggerel of a career.


is what I told my fellow applicants to the same position that I wanted.
is what I always tell her, when she says she cant come out cos she has work.
