28 – Build a career

demolish a life, swing the hammer, ride the pendulum

unfinish business

build a career three words at a time

on the lonely poets torn from prose

woven into plundered wonder

of bark and roses

from beer and cul de sacs

if you can draw this mouse

a gift from god

brick by brick

without ever having to learn


watch new technology wipe out jobs

build a career by careening and careering

but don’t become it, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow,

a castle of dreams, sharing the treasure.

Promise not to wake up.

Build a fear out of passion and risk.

Build a career – win valuable prizes!

(batteries not included)

build a career and buy gold

build a career wreck a life

build a career careening into buildings

build a career and create a life

build a career if you have no life

or ride a blue arc
