Ramblings of an Unemployed Man (very current!)

Conceived and written in September 2004.

1) Text format:

What I need is a job.
But not any kind of job
The right job, the right job, a JOB.

A job that meets my training skills
a job that satisfies me
a job that meets employers' needs
a job that merely fits

How befitting is to work
What a social satisfaction
What a wealth creation function
A job, a job, a job!

What I need is a job.
But not any kind of job
The right job, the right job, a JOB.

How depressing to be poor
How sad to be unsure

Insecurity
Uncertainty
Insanity
Being jobless a profanity!

In today's society
But is that a reality?

What I need is a job.
But not any kind of job
The right job, the right job, a JOB.

How fantastic to be rich
To be high beyond the reach
of misery
of saucery
Pure fantasy!

I don't want to be alone
Looking through the glass dome
The job ads are so many
Wish I could be fit for any
Suitable!
Employable!
Enjoyable!

What I need is a job.
But not any kind of job
The right job, the right job, a JOB.

But is it feasible?
All the experts agree
The job market is a flea
Today's reality

Yesterday's formality
Oh how the world has changed!
Oh my god I feel shortchanged

Global exchanges
Global dynamics

What I need is a job.
But not any kind of job
The right job, the right job, a JOB.

I wish I was trained in ceramics!
I could then create some art
Sell it the highest bidder

Underpaid is a curse
Little money in the purse
A job would be a blessing!
And the need is so pressing!

Like a window dressing!
