“Whatever Gets You through the Night…”

My friend’s typical work day
90 emails to respond to
7-8 meetings to move through
3 fires to put out
5 staff people in crisis to support
7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
It’s go, go, go

At 2 a.m. still awake
Her mind the Indy 500
But she knows what she needs
She reaches for her I-Pod
And listens to another Chomsky lecture
As he takes down U.S. power and ideology

She says he soothes her

Noam Chomsky

“… it’s all right, it’s all right”
