Title: Employment?

We praise those pharmaceuticals
who work through this recession
to manufacture `happy pills`
for warding off depression.

Their workload is enormous
to keep up with demand,
making & dispatching
their wares throughout the land.

To all those hard pressed drudges
we send our heartfelt thanks
and hope they too are satisfied
when visiting their banks.

So sleep`s induced by night and day,
who needs an occupation?
We`ll keep up with the `happy pills`
and stay a `happy` nation
