Justin Isis - Economic Circumstances Ni Mo Makezu

Fitter happier
More productive
Not losing to the rain
Not losing to the wind
Not losing to the snow or to the heat of the summer
With a strong body
Unfettered by desire
Never losing temper
Not drinking too much
Regular exercise at the gym [3 times a week]
Getting on better with your associate employee contemporaries
At ease
Cultivating a quiet joy
Eating well [no more microwave dinners or saturated fats]
Every day four bowls of brown rice
Miso and some vegetables to eat
A patient better driver
A safer car [baby smiling in back seat]
Sleeping well [no bad dreams]
No paranoia
Careful to animals [never washing spiders down the plug holes]
Keep in contact with old friends [enjoy a drink now and then]
Will frequently check credit at [moral] bank [hole in the wall]
Favours for favours
Fond but not in love
Charity standing orders
In everything
Count yourself last and put others before you
Watching and listening, and understanding
And never forgetting
On sundays ring road supermarket
[no killing moths or pouring boiling water on ants]
Car wash [also on sunday]
No longer afraid of the dark
Or midday shadows
In the shade of the woods of the pines of the fields
In a little thatched hut
Nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate
Nothing so childish
At a better pace
Slower and more calculated
No chance of escape
Now self-employed
Concerned but powerless
An empowered & informed member of society [pragmatism not idealism]
If there is a sick child to the east
Going and nursing over them
If there is a tired mother to the west
Going and shouldering her sheaf of rice
If there is someone near death to the south
Going and saying there's no need to be afraid
If there is a quarrel or a suit to the north
Telling them to leave off with such waste
Will not cry in public
Less chance of illness
Tyres that grip in the wet [shot of baby strapped in back seat]
A good memory
Still cries at a good film
When there's drought, shedding tears of sympathy
When the summer's cold, walk in concern and empathy
Still kisses with saliva
Like a cat
Tied to a stick
Thats driven into
Frozen winter shit [the ability to laugh at weakness]
Fitter, healthier and more productive
A pig
In a cage
On antibiotics
Called a blockhead by everyone
Without being praised
Without being blamed
Such a person
I want to become
