Well-paid Wage-slavery

Industrial cultures are extremisms
of routine, and their mass-labour,
mass-consumption rob us of our time
and our capacity to contemplate.

Albert Cossery said that "laziness"
was a form of contemplation,
even of meditation. And it is so.
Speaking wisely
(if hypocritically)
there is nothing better
than doing nothing,
which is why death
beckons to my intellect
though not to my palate.
