Corporate Shackles

“Will you walk into my parlor?” said the Spider to the Fly

As the unsuspecting fly steps in to the Corporate Parlor, the first and the strongest shackle is imposed in the form of  the monthly paycheck handed over.  The false financial security of the paycheck bounds the prisoner from exploring world outside and he is trapped in the corporate world  forever, merely passing on from one corporate house to another.

The Corporate Spider then feeds upon the time and energy of the prisoner so much that once he’s left free he doesn’t know what to do. The week at work passes by with the blink of an eye, one day merging into another, that over the weekend the prisoner doesn’t know how to use his personal time judiciously, losing his hobbies and talent over a period in incarceration.

The ultimate shackle is the blackberry, representing eternal captivity.

Hear the ringtone, “Welcome to a lifetime of eternal CORPORATE SLAVERY”!!


A dreamer. An intellectual, spoiled by the world of literature trying to find sanity through traveling and expression through Visual Art and writing! Hope you like my expressions on this blog!!

    damn..thats not so encouraging for someone like me who is thinking of shifting to the corp world….

    • If you are creative then I would recommend you explore other options before you get stuck in this quagmire and keep struggling to get out but keep sinking deeper instead!!

    hee hee. it especially irks me if they say things like “non work related distractions cost companies $55 billion annually in productivity”, as if they must milk employees for work every single second.
