Con-, to what’s left. Make the best of it, apply whatever modicums you can, especially when the descent into decrepitude and planned obsolence comes a decade shy of the starting gun.
Still, Dis-. In 2015. It feels like it was me me me. What did I do to deserve this? I was happy in the sweatshop, never had no need to dance at all.
