Making Progress

Progress is a great reward
Watching a building rise
Filling the chinks the skyline.
Reviewing a list with the “to-dos” done
Drawing a satisfying line through
Mow the lawn
Or make bank deposit
Etc.
 
We pay these tributes
To the clock and calendar
To our work ethic
All of which build up our self-esteem
Our sense of worth.
It is a subtle slavery
Which many join willingly
And celebrate triumphantly
On the day we progress to retirement...
With a gold watch.
