What Unemployment Said

by samantakbhadra

Menacing necessity am I

Lurking in the shadows

Unwanted urban offshoot

Empty cubicle

Is my child

I cause disharmony

Fear in the office air

You dare

To look into my eyes

Slithering snake

Unsuspecting enemy

Lost in its hold

I pull the trigger

And help tighten the noose


We are acquainted… I help him out

Unemployment is me

Cause of red eyes

And the occasional divorce

Hated I am

For my ruthless campaigns

Hated I shall always be

I kill souls

For money
