Feel The Pain Of The Bad Fit.

3rd October 2019.

Don’t make what’s outside of you

Shame the inside

It’s the greatest victory

Of ‘there is no other way’

When we tangle our guts

Because of the mess of knots we live in

Feel the pain of the bad fit

Change yourself if you have to

To survive

But keep your awareness of

What seeks to move us

How power forces


There is no given

That pushing to achieve is right

No given

That wage-work is what humans have to do

There is no given

That gross domestic product is any kind of measure of human health

There is no given that more status equals more rights

Or lack of it

Merits taking them from you

Not ‘working’ well

Doesn’t mean you’re broken

Feel the pain of the bad fit

Keep the outside


Change it if you can
