What would I do if I was rich.  I would actually enjoy my work.
I would probably work harder and longer
I would probably smile and lose vices, and
some day I would create something
Something that you would want
That society craves from need
Not for puerile gratification or distraction
But for reformation and change
To enable us to suffer less
To make it more obvious why we don't kill ourselves
Freed from my dependence on wages
I would voluntarily labor
And strive
And risk
And enjoy each and every day.

That is the job I hope to land someday.
It is the only one I can imagine allowing
Me to do good work and to practice and perfect
My craft and my skills.
