Screenshot 2015-12-02 09.57.03Ambitions are created by an individual and framed in the context of their work. In this case there is an ambition to deploy al the tenacity needed to stick out the daily grind of routinised work.

Ambition
Off I go to the daily grind,
But as it is I do not mind.
I’m not treated all that good,
But in their position, I too would.

No matter how bad it gets,
I will not bail.
Coffee runs and photocopying,
Delivering mail.

It’s the basic process of life,
And it adds a little bite.

(Freeman)
