Do we work to live, or do we live to work?

It’s a vicious cycle.

They make us think that getting a 9 to 5 job will fill us with hope.

We get stuck in the cycle struggling to cope.

We sacrifice our youth for them to flourish with our production,

And in return they jingle in our faces a green paper as seduction.

Their reward is insufficient, not enough for us to prosper, making our situation just one big joke!
