A Poem a Day into the Millennium
30 November 1999


  voluntary slavery a
   round any corner 
   thinking in a brand new way 
   across any street 
   the sunshine so sweet 
   you think you know their name 
   better off when on your own 
   somebody, anybody 
   could call your name 
   and you unplug the phone 
   because it's calmer that way 
   everyday is a new day 
   when you want it to be 
   and that's where I'll be 
   when I shuffle off this mortal coil 
   give up on pain and toil 
   parallel tracks 
   go as far as I can see
