The steel jungle.....

Here I sit, on my grounded chair,
Thinking about things over there,

Where is "there", you ask?

It is a place without a task
it is a place of whiskey flasks
it is a place where you relax

it is far from here, far from my steel jungle.

Towers full of electroncs all around
machines full of curcuits abound
things that make you wonder or make you frown
all of it making sounds...

sounds of fans, sounds of beeps
sounds of high voltage, crackling deep

There are no birds here, in this steel jungle.

Our sunlight come from 30 feet up
Our water comes from styrofoam cups
in this steel jungle

This is the steel jungle, full of metal trees and electrical vines
this is the place I work, so undivine
Whatever I see in it, I don't know
but I do see this monitor's bright glow.


......I am Catatonic, and this is a taste of the steel jungle I call work

But I am hard at work....I am having a discusion with fellow Engineers about lizards f---ing. This is a seirous problem, there's not enough lovemaking and way too much effing going around in the lizard community, we must find a way to bring more love to them.

Here is the photo that sparked it.....from one of the stranger employee's valentine's day emails:



Can't you see the lust in their eyes....where's the love? It's just sad, that the romance has died, and it's just simple banging the bark aginst the tree...

Nah, i just see him walking up, slapping her butt, then when the other lizard gets up to kick his butt, he starts babbling on about car insurance.

Nah, I get to wear a blue labcoat that has carbon fibers in it though....basic static-dissipative gear that's expected to be worn in that type of environment.

....the Tarzan costume would be great, until the moment all the scary old ladies start hitting on me even more

...that's the downside to being the young guy there....fortunately I don't have to work in the same line with them...sheesh.
