Lament of the Disengaged

Here’s another one of my favorite engagement poems from David Zinger’s book, Assorted Zingers. Many of us have experienced these feelings at one time or another in our work lives.
by David Zinger

When did it become
the way of work
to hate
our work
our organization
and our peers?

The daily distaste for work
crumbled our contributions
into gritty crumbs
lacking nourishment
for body, soul and self.

Is this what we get paid for?
