Redundant...I’m broken once more
By the weight of paperwork
Of the forms,
Of tick boxes,
Of crossing all the T’s
And with the dotting all the I’s
Once more following a tedious protocol
That I had thought foolishly was behind me.
The hollowness of my bank account echoes
With the lack of paid wages for worked hours
I can almost hear the terrified rattle of the few coins within
As the zombie-like bills and direct debits demand payment
Too much time becomes claustrophobic
And new work scarce, elusive, an endangered species.
Experience cancelled out by age
Capabilities stagnating without chances.
--Never a good time for redundancy.
A fool's gambleGive me a dream,
Even if its one I know I’m going to loose.
I can’t truly promise you forever,
I can love you until you tire of me
(perhaps even after that)
Eternity seems a fool’s game--
Even if my soul lasts that long.
You can give me all those hollow promises
And rehearsed sentiments and stolen verses.
I will still refuse to tie myself to an inconsistency
As your favour waxes and wanes in its fickleness…
…give me hope.
Then I might choose to gamble anyway.
