Your Purpose

Purpose

Workers–remember

Everyone must have a purpose

That’s what they say

 

A noble calling

Maybe born with it

Or your parents decided

You just thought it up

On your own

Doesn’t matter

How you got it

 

But you hafta have one

It’s the meaning of life

 

Doctor

Lawyer

Scientist

Executive

Preacher

Mayor

Governor

CEO

President

This is the List

 

 

You can choose

But these are the best choices

Best you take one of these

 

Don’t choose activist

Or social worker

God forbid!

 

There’s no excuse

For not having a purpose

Or failing to achieve it

 

That’s what they say

 

They say it doesn’t matter

Whether rich or poor

You must have a purpose

And you must achieve it

Just takes determination

 

Here comes a pandemic

30 million of you

 Unemployed

No paycheck

 

What’s your purpose?

 

What?

You say

You didn’t have time

Or energy

For a purpose?

 

Providing

Is all the purpose

You could afford?

 

And now, just surviving,

Avoiding starvation

Homelessness

That’s your purpose?

 

Only that?

 

You say

41% of Americans

Can’t come up with $250

For this emergency?

 

Is that right?

 

But those in the List

Those with money

They have a purpose

Lofty

Noble

 

Pandemic only a blip

For them

Just ride it out

 

But doesn’t their purpose…

Doesn’t their achievement

 

Depend on you?

Don’t they know that?
