Cheshire Cat's Grin

Haiku Time

For your amusement, here’s a haiku-song about one of my recent job search encounters:

Kirby

It’s too dark in there
To see if the floor is clean.
The walls are dirty.

Your crooked teeth show
Through your crooked smile. I don’t
Like this dingy place.

Your shifty eyes don’t
Ever meet my direct gaze.
How can I trust you?

“Start training Tuesday,”
You say, but you haven’t looked
At my resume.

I don’t believe in
The hard sell, and you know that’s
What it will require.

Twenty-eight hundred
Dollars is too much for a
Vacuum cleaner, dude.
