Once upon a time

There was a lot of


Folks were busy

Now, not so much

It takes so little

Toil to provide

The things we like.

Technology creates

Fewer jobs.

Not a bad thing

Consider leisure,

Opportunity to create,

Time to play.


Unless we strive

To beat the Joneses.

Then it takes all our days.

Is this fulfilling?


Let the Jones folks

Have all they want.

Maybe less is better.
