Contractual Relatins

Contractual Relations Coming to work every hazy morn Does not say my mind is still born! Nor, when I kowtow and say: Boss I equate you to He on the Cross! Monthly pay is neither exchange Of principles with beliefs strange Nor being a sloth or being a Fool Or a Merino farmed for its wool! Dirty boots walk inside my heart- Dirty feet inside my cleaner part.... Power of sinews of war, that is; dollar Cannot abduct liberty by the collar! I’m not a project marked to earn Self-actualisation is what I yearn! JM 17th Oct’ 2013

I am so blessed, Joseph, it really does sound to me like all your poems I read just now are THE answers He is sending to me in my pains and doubts!!! Thank you for the way you write. So direct and reassuring and strengthening! Blessings, Hanitra

Thanks Hanitra. Being employed is good for us and our families. Being enslaved is another.......Working conditions in African countries by International Firms must improve. I don't want to sound like I'm saying it's neo-colonialism...these Firms have to disapprove it by conducive welfare policies. Thanks against for relating to this piece. Friend, JM
