eight hours.

prescribed limit;
scratch that –
prescribed minimum.
unattainable to most,
enjoyed by a handful.
reprimanded for
failing the innate
vulnerability;
inherent necessity.

says the cavemen
who died in half
the time it will take me.
held up as the perfect
measure of a successful
evolution; prosperous society.
yet millions die
of hunger, rape, trauma
and psychological destruction.
