NO BUSINESS
(10/30/15)


there's
practically none

not even
show business

we definitely
have little to
show
for our business

we grind
away
with little
result

we try
to think
in relative
terms

we are
paying
the bills

barely

we aren't
killing
anyone

causing
any madness
or mayhem

detracting
from the social
structure
in any manner

we're simply
not making
any profit

we know
that a comet
could crash
into the planet
and no one
would know
that we were
ever here

whether
we failed
or succeeded

even though
we seem a success
at failure

our destiny
is tied
to the fact
that no one
is any longer
buying
what we're
selling

no great
shame

perhaps
the economy
is to blame

perhaps
our product
has passed
its prime

perhaps
we simply
aren't any good
at what we're
supposed
to be doing

we churn
away regardless
with little consideration
for making
a change

our methods
have always
worked
before

we continue
to struggle

awaiting
that next
dollar

hoping
to keep
the lights
on

for
one more
day
