Out of the purple plastic shuffle
Keystone drudgery
American work week
Conference call Saturdays
Email catch up Sundays
Headspace clearing sick days
Out of this aluminum collar clipping
Hawaiian shirt Thursdays
Denim Fridays
“How was your weekend” returns
Smile-Smile-Smile
Out of this old husk recycled
I strip and strut and shout myself
Declare my soul against market value
Determine the environment of my mind
Determine my own determinism
I am no capital, no resource
I am soul, mother fucker
I am soul
