Job Offer

Job Offer

They say you applied
Did you apply or they applied
For you?  Now they have supplied.

But have conveniently forgotten
To supply you with the vital kitten
That should take you to their kitchen.

You are mired in grave job frustration
You can`t bother of their company registration
You see nothing but your future jubilation.

Think deeper. Is there something dodgy or straight?
If it`s straight where is their contact info or website?
For all what they are worth, they could be fake
Wait a minute. Your little money they seek to take.

Look for signs of legitimacy. You are wondering?
They want you to be their money laundering….
What? –Mule! Let them do their ‘philandering’.

They mess around on their poor scam spam road
Com`on someone, give me something? A big rod!
Let`s smash them into pulp till they yell, Lord!

  7. “To supply you with the vital kitten

    In some old stories we hear of a cat playing the role of a “guide”, leading a confused and lost person out of the thickness of a given forest. They would say: no person can get lost when they have a cat by their side. In this case the company info “guides” the prospective employee to locate the premises.

    The kitchen is said to be the heart of the home. And if is usually found in the backyard In this case, it is the heart of the company, the head/administration offices. Talk of hr activities, the selection and recruitment procedures. Therefore, it is not a mere forced rhyme scheme.

    Thanks for your frank and perceptive analysis! This serves to make us better writers and thinkers, l guess.
