After Careful Consideration – Written April 2007 (Aged 27)

After Careful Consideration

another one, sit there
beg to be let in
and, after careful consideration
i put the rejection letter in the bin
who gave me careful consideration
at the interview, did they get inside
i do not remember that situation
have these people,
ever tried realisation
another one, an envelope and a letter
of careful consideration
do they think i am a fool
who took careful consideration –
to decide i was not suitable
i do love these job interviews
with your best like tie
and school like shoes
and you are meant to take consolation
that you were rejected
after careful consideration
how good, i shall never feel rejected

James Garratt – April 2002
