The New Guy At Work
He’s got direction in his veins, focus on both pupils,
he wants to feel the pain, the exhaustion, the different kind of sleep.
He’s done with all of Youth’s bitchiness, to see through
the quarter life crisis that’s been waiting for him,
dreams for artistic satisfaction, a degree to hang on the wall,
that all expenses paid trip back to the motherland
and endless dates with his perfect girl.
He’s got a life to fix, you see.
So for £7.00 an hour
he won’t bother with you
and how much you think this job sucks
