Freedom from work, a poem by Nia Simone

Freedom from Work

How nice not to have to get serious.
No need to schedule a meeting.
No wondering when,
of four hundred and sixty
To Dos
one will fall through a crack.
And show up on my review.

No more having to be reasonable
or confine my passions to the acceptable.

No getting narrowly defined.
Though you made it worthwhile
for you (all y’all) accepted my narrowly channeled passion
and let me experience
work with
love.

Now I slipped through a crack
and I am free from work.
