The fetid stench of death hangs in the air.

Wave after wave of automatons bombard me with idiotic enquiries. Slow and inbred, their stupidity abounds. A sea of bad grammar and broken English. The air is stale, and rife with frustration that hangs like a silent mist around everyone here.

Somnambulant faces surround me, slowly deadened by the constant grind of these mindless, repetitive tasks

Close by, a shrivelled up sasquatch of a female sits motionless. Shifting her bulbous mass, she epitomises the death of human creativity. I try to remember that she was once a person. A fully fledged human, not some godawful corpse rotting in this house of death.

That divine spark which so often brings a smile to my face is buried here in a shallow grave amidst statistics, numbers and silent resignations.

Colourful streamers are meant to placate the masses. What fitting solution to those faithful few who stand on the deck of this burning vessel.

I'm like a whore, elegantly dressed, laying down my flesh for men with appetites to unseemly to mention. I'll stay quiet and endure until it is over. Close my eyes and avert my ears from the ugliness. Subvert. Repent. Deny.

Like a woman brutally murdered, her skin still warm. Callously snatched in the dead of night. Her heart still beating. Her eyes close and she is gone. No good can come from this. Where soul and spirit are so casually imprisoned.

I really hate this job.

(Sorry to throw all this darkness your way kids, I just had to vent. I wrote this at work today. Counting down the days until I can get me a new job and get my fine lil arse on outta here!!)

Denny: Indeed things have taken a downward turn since you've been gone. Although that piece of writing was no doubt influenced by the bad mood that work induced yesterday!

Shane: I warned you! I did! Thanks for your support as usual dude. Just a snapshot of my darkness yesterday.
