The Lake Of Employment


The Lake Of Employment

Machine-like efficiency rusting from waves of discourtesy
I grow heavier the weight of workers's politics crashes over my head
relentless in their sodden idiosyncrasies

The desire for excellence
choking on the dirty water of someone else's mistake
Striving to please
drowns in soaked HR paperwork
The undertow of cubeville's complaining whitecaps
grasps me by the fear of unemployment
and pulls me under
