We’re Going On A Job Hunt

 

We are going on a job hunt,
We’re going to find a good one.
What a daunting day.
We’re not prepared.

Woo-hoo! A job

A shiny, interesting job
We can’t ignore it, we can’t avoid it.
Oh no, we have to go and apply for it.

Waffle, waffly!
Waffle, waffly!
Waffle, waffly!

We are going on a job hunt,
We’re going to find a good one.

A very short deadline.
We can’t ignore it.
We can’t avoid it.
Oh no, we have to go and apply for it.

Arghhhhhh, errrghhh!
Arghhhhhh, errrghhh!

We are going on a job hunt,
We’re going to find a good one.
What a daunting day.
We’re not prepared.

Uh-uh! A form.
A rambling long computer form.
We can’t ignore it.
We can’t avoid it.
Oh no we have to go through with it.

Bumble, click!
Bumble, click!
Bumble click!

We are going on a job hunt,
We’re going to find a good one.

A part-time and flexible job offer!
We can’t ignore it.
We can’t not take it.
Woo hoo, we’ve got to go through with it.

Cele-brate!
Cele-brate!
Cele-brate!

We’re not going on a job hunt,
We’ve finally found a good one.
What a beautiful day.
We’re not scared.

Uh-uh! It only pays £15k.

A measly, ridiculous £15k
We can’t ignore it, we can’t afford it.
We’ve got to go decline it.

Bloody hell!
Bloody hell!
Bloody hell!

….

We’ve got to go on a job hunt AGAIN!

 

Broken

​Bruised like a peach, cerebral scars mark my inner head,

Pinpointing clearly the source of my fear and dread.
But no one peels back the label to gaze and see,
The pain that consumes me futifully.

Ignored, despised, rejected and denied,
I’m left to drown in the dehydrated tears I’ve cried.
My golden shimmer has dimmed and fades to clear,
As all my dreams and aspirations that I hold dear
Dissipate and dissolve in a shroud of smoke, swallowed up by an invisible force anxious to see me choke.

I stand alone in a platoon of faces,
Borne in an array of creeds and races,
Who watch me flounder in plain sight,
Unwilling and unable to save me from my internal plight. 

They watch me plunge into a hungry shore,
The waves lapping, locking tightly around my core.
But as I sink into a sea of despair,
Not one steps out to show they care.

Blood ties sever, as my pained heart tumbles on a bed of sand,
Where only the peaceful sleeping fishes can  understand.
My desperate cries won’t be heard by the onlookers above,
For these damned souls can only be cured through love.

But little pity is spared for the mentally ill,
Who instead are prescribed pill after pill.
For the world cannot accept an illness inside a head,
Because who would believe one

person’s wish to be dead?

My Vow

Like a limpet, I’ll stick to you like glue,

Like a stubborn weed, I’ll stay put with you,

Through all the tears and all the frowns,

Through all the ups and all the downs,

You are my raison d’etre, my guiding star

Whether we are together or separated afar.

And I will love you even when we are decrepit and greyed,

For your humour and smile shall never fade.

I will care for you when your legs don’t work,

When you get on my nerves or act like a berk.

For I love you for you, for every strength and flaw,

In every row, dispute or slam of the door.

Me and you, we were meant to be,

To grow old together and bear a family.

A love like ours extends beyond the stars,

Worth more than any rubies, riches or cars.

And fifty years from now, it will still be the same,

For time cannot knell or extinguish our flame.
