Work "Up Ahead"

-

My world is turning to shit

And I have to work next year?

Without retirement?

Oh, this is gonna suck

"I just know it"

I could just see it all now

Strugglin' to pay the bills

Dependent on a job for my food even

Even Medicare premium

Well, now what am I gonna do?

Work in cubical 4 days a week

__all day next year forever?

What if we go into a recession?

What if we lose funds?

How can I handle the pressure?

Especially that kind of pressure

I'll only have 3 days of poetry

3 days of posting

4 days of what seem like

A forevers worth of detention

I know

It's the career I've dreamed of

But can I handle

The no security?

The no fall back safety?

Even if I don't get hired

Then I'm stuck at mom and dad's

Forever

And then when they die

Then what?

Jennifer's?

And then when she dies

Where else?

I guess this is it

I'm not gonna have no cake

Nor will I be able to eat it

I'm doomed

Unless when I'm working

I could stop writing

And then just post 3 days a week's

__worth of old poems

Then maybe

My purpose will be fulfilled

I can do that

"I guess"
