  • Metro refugee carpooling home
    stressed-out public servant
    checking government clock
    single-parent shift worker
    teens at home alone
    taxi-driving 2nd income
    making things work out

    It’s what we do
    people work
    need so much stuff

    Just like government
    we spend too much money
    it’s what we do

    Work too hard to get all the stuff
    20% of the people
    use 80% of the resources

    Retreat at the week-end...two crusts from the loaf
    I live with my family on the sidelines of work
    Who am I kidding? No second chance!
    the purpose of life is to keep buying stuff
    my job is to get money

    Measure worth in dollars & cents
    add ourselves lucky if we’ve been enabled
    making more than we earn.
