The Ad Agency Workers

No one wants to be here
In boxed-in solitude.
We won’t make art, we fear –
creative flow subdued.

In boxed-in solitude,
we wait here for our tasks.
Creative flow subdued,
we do just what Boss asks.

We wait here for our tasks –
the same ones as last year.
We do just what Boss asks;
why even keep us here?

The same year after year –
because this model worked.
To it we must adhere
in khakis and blue shirts.
