Waste : A Short Poem

John Grech


There are few bigger investments than looking for a job
Think of all the time you spend looking for that "opportunity,"
then the time you spend contacting the employer,
then brushing up your CV and carefully composing that perfect letter,
and then getting ready for that all important interview
and, after all that, this huge investment may lead to nothing.
So keep on wasting all you can, it's great for the economy.
And there is no greater form of waste than looking for a job.
