Inspired by headline in local newspaper
“What Jobs?” The question was clear;
So much unemployment in this land, we hear.
It is a chore to sit and wait
For industry, to come and improve our fait.
It is a chore to sit back and think;
Unearned income, for my existence; that is a stink;
A job, to be quiet, to let laziness roam;
Very discouraging to be rejected; by closed doors and by phone.
Take that anxiety and let it boil.
Like the steam engine; don’t let the power spoil.
Channel it wisely like the eagle to soar.
To change the status quo;
Is what society is looking for;
The resource between our ears;
The thrill of accomplishment and overcoming fears.
See the joy in a negative situation;
Pain to pleasure will overcome devastation;
Take a life and live in hope;
Nurture feelings so effectiveness can cope.
Take the joy of family and friends
Nurture with thoughts for a prosperous end.
What jobs? The question is clear.
To cultivate a personality, for expression to appear.
