That Paycheck! Just Looks Too Good To Get - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People who have found their comfort,
With a paid incompetence to maintain...
To feel they have made it with others to boast.
Have reason to believe they have achieved success.
And why not?
Since there are very few who are left,
Motivated and inspired...
To leave their positions of mediocrity.

And the routine of pushing papers,
From one end to the other on a desk...
With their name on it,
To feel they should be the ones left alone...
At a bar during happy hour,
Depressed and drinking with wishes to be the best.
But that paycheck! Just looks too good to get,
Every two weeks to make such stupid confessions.
