Application Form – Written December 2003 (Aged 28)

Application Form

hard and common sense
have not seen that for some time –
on a job application form
all this business nonsense
only proves madness was born –
they ask what and when
and how old
but a willingness to work
does not come in from the cold
there is no equal opportunity –
if the truth be told
working hard just to jump on board
before you retire you are old
on this sort of culture –
i am not really sold
of reality, application forms are shorn
when is the last time –
you saw individuality on an application form
a willingness to work hard –
might as well be forgot
when is the last time you saw common sense
on an application form?
