The drone of footfalls thudding,

The scrape of feet shuffling
In automaton …marching orders
Keeping in line with the unspoken rule of space invasion… packed in trains…ready for shipment to the humdrum of wages and taxes
Finding solace in the journey by trying to be oblivious to the march …full volume music through earphones
Inescapable…shackled by a mindset of own volition 
Bolstered by excuses…bills to pay. 
Time out is a good thing… a necessary break…coming up for air 
…I blog to escape the mania of this ‘rat race’
