Painting by the Numbers

Living off government welfare
Is like painting by the numbers
Not matter what you say
"It's not your art!"
And it's someone else's money!

I.M (Intermanagement)

Learning to smile
whilst turning the knife
in one’s subordinates anatomy.
A life, so rife for strife.


For Charles Henderson's Grook contest.
I.M a management training module in the nineties
(Where, building one's esteem, so the fall was even greater?)

I'm A Chump

<                                        emphasis of labor day

                                        symbolic's end of summer

                                        picnics and parades display

                                     American workers get chummier

No Independent Thought Allowed

This is our front (some say bureaucracy)
You must behave professionally
Do as you're bidden and keep the folks in charge well hidden from inquiry.
Above all, please remember
competency is
forbidden.

Low Battery

My job's a bore, 
it pays some bills
and helps me buy 
my sleeping pills.
It pays for female
 hormones, too
and Prozac so 
I won't get blue.
It pays for pills 
I split in half
(the uppers I must
 make to last)
He only prescribed
me thirty-two  
when they are gone, 
what will I do?
Some more Excedrin
 with caffeine
to try and fuel 
this old machine.
They pay me just 
to sit and stare
at rhythms in 
the monitor's glare.
Most of the time, 
I'm doing nil.
I look forward to 
my sleeping pill.
