This essay looks at meaning without work.  Really the problem is not a shortage of work.  There's a ton of stuff that needs doing, there always will be, and people need stuff to do.  The problem is one of distribution: how to pay people for what needs doing.  So much of the money is stuck in a few hands, who don't want to pay for work.  If you want meaning, form relationships, make stuff, have adventures, choose hobbies, save the world.  This often has little if anything to do with making a living, though some of us are lucky enough to find both together.

Stanley Weston has passed away.  Among his accomplishments, he was a co-creator of the series Thundercats.  When he noticed that there were no dolls marketed to boys, he created G.I. Joe -- and thus the whole "action figure" genre.  Talk about leaving a big imprint.

Based on an audience poll, this is the free epic for the May 2, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl reaching the $200 goal. This poem is spillover from the January 3, 2017 Poetry fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] daisiesrockalot plus conversations with [personal profile] dialecticdreamer and other fans. It also fills the "WILD CARD: dusk" square in my 1-1-17 card for the Dark Fantasy Bingo fest. This poem belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.
