This is supposed to be a poem
written by: J.Ahlberg
All I can be sure of is what I am doing.
What I should be doing is of consequence
Only to the various organisations
Who claim recompense
In a subjective sense
From my resources.
According to corporation of canine
Owners should be walking in a straight line
On the terms of kids company plc
The office of house ought to be tlc
Friends and family group conglomerate
Expect mergers and masses for a doctorate
Whereas employers multinational
Want results and projections sensational
And the syndicate that manages the sanity of self
Is indebted to a fragile form of mental health.
So what, if anything are you supposed to be doing?
The doing does what the wanter asks
And the doer never knows who owns the task.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
This is a very dense poem. It questions the ownership of the "ought" that drives us in our responsibilities and obligations to one another. It asks the reader who the ought truly belongs to.
