My Short Verse #2 - Poem by louis rams

on the job
my position they rob

bring them flowers
they cut my hours

claim they're a friend
screw you to the end

in despair
they don't care

must go to the unemployment line
to them that's fine

getting govt. help
to them that's swell

company closed down
i'm laughing like a clown
