We the American working population
Hate the nine-to-five day-in day-out
When we'd rather be supporting ourselves
By being paid to perfect the pastimes
That we have harbored based solely on the fact
That it makes us smile if it sounds dope
Aesop expresses the deep desire that everyone has about their lives. Given the choice, Would you rather make a living performing mindless, repetitive labor for someone else or doing what you want? The answer is obvious but most of us are too far into the working dogma to do anything about it.
