Did I leave the cubicle, or did the cubicle leave me?

Did I leave the cubicle (or did the cubicle leave me?)

This new song encapsulates the Tech Zeitgeist - " I know how to fix it- "turn it off and on again" - who hasn't heard that said to them in a hundred different accents?




LYRICS:



Scratching in the office bored out of my brain
Squinting at a spreadsheet, trying to explain
Plotting how I’d change, could I survive without this job
jumpy from the coffee, a man facing his lynch mob

Did I leave the cubicle or did the cubicle leave me?

I suppose that I got pissed off with the way things were with me

always an emergency, something to fix cause it was broke

and the thing that kept me going was my girlfriend and my jokes

Did I leave the cubicle or did the cubicle leave me? *2?


I picked up the phone, well it was ringing on my desk
LaughJohnLaugh’s Tech Department you know I am the best
She said; ‘I’ve got a situation, could you ever hurry in’
I know how to fix it; turn it off and on again

Did I leave the cubicle or did the cu…

TROUBLE (Path Challenge)

Trouble in the basement trouble in the town
Trouble in the high place trouble all around
Trouble when we get up trouble when we lie
Trouble all the time until the day we die

Trouble in the open trouble in the close
Trouble in infinity troubles we don't know
Troubles in the mind the heart of every man
What to do with trouble - we’re doing what we can

Trouble
Trouble
Trouble
Trouble

Trouble in the street Trouble up and down
Trouble in the air in trouble we can drown
Trouble in the earth trouble in the sea
trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, you n me


Chorus

Trouble in the Ghetto Trouble with the ho’s
Trouble in the Unions, teacher’s got a bloody nose
Trouble joined the circus trouble in the squaare
And now we go and l…

They came for the teacher's, trade unionists, the immigrants.

They came for the Trade Unionist's


[Originally written in 2011 so decided to update it a little bit]
With the latest Supreme Court decision they are still coming for the Trade Unionists, demonizing any organizing of people, picking on and pre-selecting an enemy to blame economic woes on 'the immigrants'.

Recent events in Wisconsin have worried me and when I spoke to a teacher on Saturday night at a fund raising party to support a school she told me of people's apathy and nonresistance. The removal of Trade Union rights reminds me of the terrible and slow rose to power of demonic forces in Germany after 1933 and people's uncomfortable acceptance of a slow change from democracy to one party power. I always loved this German Pastor's quotation from that time of oppression and persecution.
First They came... - Pastor Martin Niemoller

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the tr…
