Title: Booty

Everyone I know is stressed out
And that includes myself.
We've become pill-popping morons
Concerned about our health.

We're told to take things easy
To try yoga or T'ai Chi.
We're advised to find a new hobby
And spend time with our family.

I've been unemployed for years now
And my stressed friends are the same.
The doctors dish out the Prozac
That drives us all insane.

But no-one seems interested
In getting to the problem root.
We'd all really like to be working
And not to keep getting the boot.
