No Bullshit – Written Monday 26th July 1999 (Aged 24)

No Bullshit

no bullshit
none of your crap
none of your, ‘well you are nice’
your teeth are clean
they say,
get on your knees
and maybe you can have this job

did you know,
my only power in this company
is interviewing people like you
and because i am so insecure
and because i feel so inadequate
i will make you beg for this job
i will judge you before you even move

i am a stupid twenty something
i have been in this company
i am a stupid twenty something
and since i was a stupid sixteen
compromising all my dreams
i think i am really great
but inside i know i am a fake
no bullshit, look,
just tell me straight
have i got the job
do not keep me hanging on for a week or two
look, i am not going to, ‘kiss your arse’
i really hate people like you
no bullshit, this is just a farce
i think i will leave
if you were to die tomorrow
i would piss on your grave before i grieve
