    Factory: Legalized compulsive labor, only the pay, meager as it may be, separates it from slavery. They pay you just enough to keep you from quitting, while managing to make you feel less important than a used condom.

    Labor:
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...
