:work ethic:

never forgive the job anything.

it is there to manhandle you,
terrify you, entrap you,

wear you down.

so never forgive it anything.
never attach any importance,
significance,
happiness,
contentment,
or attention to it.

never excuse it
or thank it
or consider it as a reason,
that something has gone well

see it for what it is,
psoriasis of the soul.

  — Brian McGettrick (b. 1974), Northern Irish Poet.
