Day 267 – The Cycle

Leave a comment

Good morning, decent candidate,
You seem worthy enough for our cause.
Please, ready yourself for an interrogation.
Be willing to put life on pause.

We care not for your passions or struggles,
We just want to know if you’re worth our time.
You seem credible enough to look over,
Now convince us with more than a sign.

Prove that you are to please us.
Show evidence, bring your best words.
Argue in your favor, for that’s all you have left,
For the rest must be left for the birds.

But before you sign away your soul,
Surrender your bank account too.
You know there will be nothing to your name.
Isn’t this what you set out to pursue?
