Posting for Job

Posting for Job

“Any soul you have the power to assist,
Assist for such soul is thy brother or sister.”

You hear it everytime
Mr. Commissioner for Works
Yet you keep promising
Posting for job
And better life
“See me tomorrow in my office”
For nothing

Than to tell me I’m talented
Young man,
Keep managing the business
I made for you under the Y’ello umbrella
Selling recharge card
And sim and casing
For Blackberry
With a B.Sc for nothing

I just have to declare
My regret
That you’re my blood
From the same mom

Keep enjoying your AC appartment
Trying all you can
To turn my star upside down
By leaving me to the sun
To scourge my awareness
To realise
That life is all man for himself.

  1. Uh uh… Sucks jare. You’d think he would want to help his brother since nepotism is the word. Didn’t check your qualifications and all that ryt? Don’t worry he would regret not helping, but by then you wouldnt need it. Keep striving, okay? Cheers!

  2. All will be well….

  5. The title didn’t help at all, I was warming up to read an article on job search! º°˚˚˚°ºнihihihihihihº°˚˚˚°º‎˚
    But seriously, this kind of situation is prevalent in most families…elderly and more successful ones, not lending a helping hand to younger ones.
    Nice read.

  6. @samueldpoetry,

    I think that it’s OK for people in privileged positions to help their friends/relatives who need help, but it should NOT just be because they are their friends/relatives; they should ALSO have qualifications to do the job.

    At best, the connection should grant them the interview, but not necessarily the position.

    Unfortunately, that’s not often the case.
