That's Not My Job (To Make Sense) - Poem by Larry Hussey

It's not my job
to make sense.
They should build
a factory to make
perfect sense
on a conveyor belt
then sell it in boxes
on the store shelves
then people could get
all the sense they want
instead of asking me to make
a homemade batch
out of odds and ends.
That's not my job.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

One of the newer ideas in psychology is that every individual has the right to make no sense. So if somebody tells you you are not making sense, just ignore them.

    Great! I would just avoid the repetitive sentence in the end, submitting, for example: I prefer be jobless in the world of Perfect Sense. Certainly this is my opinion, pardon me :) (Report) Reply
