About time

Capitalism
which loathes loners, monks, hermits
and the self-sufficient has - ironically,
enantiodromically - created a system
uniquely favourable to dissidents,
thoughtful and intelligent drop-outs
(and, of course, criminals).

Since I (so unregretfully) left school
unemployable
I've had a quality of life which gave me
complete control of my time,
my wider environment, and
my more-than-adequate
below-the-poverty-line income.

I give thanks
to the taxes of those
whose whole identity was employment -
the surrender of their time
to banks.
