Dear Salary

You work.
You make reports.
You analyse your data.
You make fancy slideshows.
Process numbers in spreadsheets.
Make photocopies & file them for record.
Plans, schedules, meetings, emails, fax, xerox.
Explain your boss why this month was not so good.
Prepare for appraisals hoping for that 15% rise in the salary.
Do you see how your monthly salary dominates 5/7th of your life?
What of the promise that you made to your five year old self?
What do you look forward to when you leave home?
Why are you just a copy of a copy of a copy?
What makes you work the way you do?
Where are your big fat dreams?
Where is all your passion?
Where is the romance?
Where's the fun?

Dedicated to everyone still figuring what to do with their lives while they sit in their offices on a Saturday afternoon.
