i should have just punched out

10 Feb

i should have punched out of that place a long time ago

with it’s too tight pants and too high collars

with it’s sleazy reputation and union dues

they would steal your cigarettes and smash your deck of cards

they would pee in the trashcans and poop in the yard

not the kind of work environment i prefer

no respect at all for man or beast

and they didn’t like plants much either

one time when a guy who had worked at this place even longer than i

asked me what i thought which was weird because

nobody ever said anything in that place except

scuse’ me asshole!

but this guy was wearing a heavy overcoat

in the middle of a sultry summer day

and i said i hated every minute i spent there

and this guy snickered

i had never actually heard a man snicker before

and i hope i don’t again

i should have just punched out of that place

a long time ago
