THE JOBHOLDER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I stand in the rain waiting for my bus
Last Line: And wait for my turn to die.
Subject(s): Death; Labor & Laborers; Dead, The; Work; Workers


I stand in the rain waiting for my bus
and in the bus I wait for my stop.
I get let off and go to work
where I wait for the day to end
and then go home, waiting for the bus,
of course, and my stop.

And at home I read and wait
for my hour to go to bed
and I wait for the day I can retire
and wait for my turn to die.
