Performing Seals at the Circus

She’s part of the professional tennis circuit.

A capitalist enterprise. Players are commodities.

Expected to keep consumers and bosses happy.

It’s not enough to focus on the exploitation of women.

We’re all in the circus, labour for the profit of others.

We have next to no free time. We’re expected to consume.

During our time off from the meat-packing factory.

Shop till you drop. Keep up your performance levels.

Media Moguls crack the whip. Clap your flippers.

With the development of techno-capitalism.

The exploitation of pleasure. Social life creates profit.

Feelings of freedom designed to make labour worthwhile.
