I'D Like To See What Makes You Qualified - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am glad you are here to discuss my qualifications.
Now...
If you don't mind.
I'd like to see what makes you qualified,
To discuss mine with a revealing of your evidence.

And please...
Spare me those explanations,
About following your job description.

Never once have I had a position...
That did not take advantage of my abilities.
Once I expressed my capabilities...
That I needed not to embellish with exposed facts.
And if you are reluctant I will understand.

'Are you seeking employment?
Or do you want to run the place? '

I seek employment,
Of course.
However...
To prove myself to be competent,
Would offend too many people.
