The grieving poet was sad,

His news sounded so bad…

He lost a venue

To distribute through,

To many fine fans that he had.

He misunderstood his boss,

And thus suffered this loss…

To be in his shoes

This job he can’t lose,

Fighting back just ain’t* worth the cost.

He’s stopped just as requested

Ending things as suggested…

One or two know

His list had to go,

Inconvenience that won’t be contested.

—J. Caswell

*ain’t” is slang for “isn’t”***


  1. like this one good job

    • I don’t—but then? Ya gotta keep the job and obey the commander!

  2. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:

    BOOO….HISSSS!!!! 🙂

  3. Say it ain’t so…being stifled by the man. 🙂

    • it is so…but the Poet did it to himself! bummer!

  4. I feel like there’s a subtext here that I am too tired or stupid to get. Are you referring to you or someone as yet unnamed?
