not like I’m claiming medals

for some half forgotten war

I’m talking of this job

that job doing that

& they go: you?


I must present

some poor dressed awful schmuck

dowdy intellectual peon


yes, me

I did that for a while

then I got into this

& you who had one job

since you got out of school

& pushed into that

by your overbearing parent

think you’re better than me?

one safe life job you cultivated

sucked up to the boss to keep

narked on your fellow employees

while I was out hustling

for the next break

you get to question me?
