About This Poem

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Baa Baa Black Sheep
We don't want your wool.

Please sir, Please sir,
I have three bags full.

You are too old.
You are out of date.

But I work hard,
And I'm never late.

You don't have the
Look we're looking for.

That's no reason to
Boot me out the door.

We want new skills
For this vocation.

But I have twice
The education.

You have too much
Experience now.

But they have none!
They don't even know how!

Baa Baa Black sheep,
We don't want your wool.

Job security?
I've been played the fool.

    Nice look at the job market through an old nursery rhyme.

    Nice twist on the nursery rhyme, you can sue them for age discrimination but likely as not it would not be worth your while. Just joking...great piece. BTW: thanks for comments on my own pieces. Appreciated it is.

    Intense as hell! Kudos on the "Job security" question. A sad truth. Well done!

    Wow, I love the twist in this old nursery rhymn to the theme of obsoletion. So poignant in today's world. Very clever and great wording. Well done. Take care, Richard
