Poor men could advance their position
By committing acts labeled evil
But wont for fear of
Wealthy men retain status
By committing evils and
Are unaffected by karma
Because they are not handicapped
By the belief
When it’s 1am
And you want to sleep
But the poetry in your head won’t let you rest
Or is it the demons?
Tortured or talented?
Down the rabbit hole (s)he goes
He was the type of guy who
Walked with his chest cavity open
So they could see his bleeding heart
Everywhere he went
Was sure to leave a mess
Today at work
A customer says to me
“You look like you don’t wanna be here”
Gee bitch what gave it away?
My tired feet?
Or the minimum wage i’m paid to perform the labors of ten men
(Cuz sexist employer practices rarely hire women to stock)
All this i say to her mentally
As i bend over…
To lift another box
Ignoring her and her comment entirely
You were in my dream again and
So was he
The two of you visiting me
Its been ages
Since i’ve spoken
To either of you
He and i parted on bad terms
She and i, well
My fault for never closing the gap
Bridge was wide open
Even in my fantasies
I choked up
Let you drift away from me
Without saying bye
Only a shallow individual
Would do a good deed
(Like feed a hungry person)
Then immediately publicize it
The deed in itself is the reward
You don’t get praise points too
After a year of searching for a job, filling out tons of applications and being accepted for interviews that go absolutely nowhere, finally i’ve landed a job at General Dollars.
Took a bit of effort to snag this one. Had to take a break from my first love marijuana to pass a drug test and then needed to collect all thee necessary paperwork afterwards. But with that ordeal finally over ive officially become a member of the team.
Right off the bat i know im gonna have problems because one of the cashiers mean mugged me right away. It wasnt just a passing glance, no, this bitch full own glared at me for at least 10 minutes straight and me, also showing that i too dont give a fuck, proceeded to respond with a long glare of my own. In my own words saying “bitch don’t fuck with me i hate you too.”
Though im glad i was finally able to nab a job im angry at the position that i’ve been hired on for. All i wanted was a simple cashier position. But i’ve noticed a sexist trend in retail employment. Only the women are allowed to work the registers while the men have to do all the back breaking labor being stock boys and helping unload trucks and that’s exactly the position i was hired on as.
Even worse i have to wake up ass early in the morning for this bullshit. It’d be one thing if i was being paid a decent wage but nope, all this bullshit starts at a measly $7.50.
Oh well, we’ll see what happens i suppose. Hopefully I can last longer than 3 months this time but that all has to do with how much bullshit my manager(s) decide to put me through.
